The morning after finding the red foxes (see previous post), I went to my normal gray fox spot. I hadn’t been there in quite some time, and never been in the morning. Soon after beginning my morning walk, this little feller jumped out of the tall grass, and approached me. I followed him into a tiny forested area, where we hung out among the trees and and bushes.
Unfortunately the friendly nature of the gray foxes is often caused by people who may or may not know, not to feed wildlife. NEVER FEED WILDLIFE!!! It not only habituates the animals to humans, but can and does hurt the animals physically (look up angel wing, for ducks).
Yesterday I spent the day in Point Reyes, CA. I’ve been to Point Reyes a few times, but never really explored much of it. I spent the day hiking new trails, seeing new landscapes, and taking notes of areas I’d like to return to. The sun was setting, and I didn’t take many photos throughout the day, so I decided to take a last drive around, to see if anything was out and about. I then spotted these handsome fellows, to the left and pulled the car over. There were at least ten more elk around, but these guys were in a nice little group so I took advantage of the light, and situation.
I haven’t taken a good shot of a bobcat since last summer. Haven’t really seen any around either, and have been dying to see one again. Luckily yesterday, I came across this beauty! She just hung out for a while and let me get some shots. Sunol Regional Wilderness, Sunol, CA
The day before Easter, my girlfriend Kelly and I went for a nice little hike and saw a bunch Jack Rabbits running around. More than I have ever seen at one time. They must have been getting ready for the holiday, or maybe it’s just spring? Edgwood Park, Redwood City, CA
I haven’t been out to the preserves for the last two weeks. I had my wisdom teeth removed and started a new job. Today when I got off work, I headed straight up to Monte Bello and watched this beautiful Great Blue Heron hunt for fish.
