Blood On The Snow...

We had a little snow and freezing rain yesterday so I did not venture out.  Today I went to one of my ususal spots, a meandering gravel road along a beautiful stream.  The first wildlife I saw was this young gray squirrel...


Next, I passed the tree where I spotted a screech owl just two days ago.  To my surprise, it was still in the same spot and appeared to be napping contentedly...



As I headed for home I came upon this blood trail in the snow.  There is no way to say for certain how it was made, but my guess is that a late season bow hunter was successful and this is the route that he took to bring his came to the road...



Thanks for visiting.  Stop back again, soon.
