Coyotes crossing the motion cam and going up the creek.
After Mother's Day lunch I dropped by the TMA woods. I haven't seen the Moccasine since he shed his skin but the pool near his root ball had a Southern Snapper submerged at the entrance. Not a trace of a beaver so the water is low and as clear as I have ever seen it.
I set my watch. He didn't take a breath for 32 minutes at least, probably because he spotted me at the same time I spotted him. Hard for a hot-blooded simian to outwait a 100 million year old reptile design. And I didn't start today.
Rabbit, hawk, little fish. Blooming yucca on the pad pushed up long ago along the frontage road for a building site that never got used. I walked down to the beaver dam site and it's now a very solid sandbar that backs up a big pool, but that's it.
