Trail Camera Pictures

It is always interesting to see what the next year's crop brings.  It is one thing for the cameras to catch them at a feeder and another to sit out and see them.

Katelyn's Tree

This oak tree was planted when Katelyn was just a baby.  Being an Oak it will take a long time to grow.  Maybe when she is my age it will be big enough to have a picnic under it.
It is close enough to a water source so that I can periodically give it  a soaking.

Whenever I find pieces like this I always wonder if the other half is nearby.

Country Dogs are tough...

 Ella, pictured this morning, getting back to normal.
 Ella really enjoyed coming inside where it was cool.  You can see where most of the swelling had gone down.  This was about twenty-four hours after getting bitten between the nose and lip on her right side by a rattlesnake.
Here is a side view yesterday, Sunday.

Snake bite...

Here is a picture of the snake that bit Ella on the right side of her face today.  About six weeks ago I took her in to get vaccinated for just this happening.  Ella's right side of the face is quite swollen and I'm thinking she will be a sick puppy for a few days but my experience is that it isn't fatal.


 Ella listening for some distant dog barking.
Ella really enjoys taking a dip in the troughs.  Here she is making an exit.
