Our World and Nature Notes: Wrapping up Summer

I didn't take any photographs this week so I decided to pick shots from June, July and August that I haven't posted on my blog.


I think it's funny how the ducks appear to be joining all the walkers and joggers but going in the opposite direction.


I'm grateful that this was a very mild summer.


The juvenile robin below posed for me.


I have been surprised at how many deer have found their way to Shelley Lake's woods. I never used to see them there in the past but I think as the developments continue to gobble up more and more of what used to be rural and forest areas, the deer are forced to find suburban parks to move to.


Last but not least is one of this year's fox babies who was grown up enough by late August to come up on my deck without its parents. Usually when I see the foxes, the whole family comes to my deck for water.

You are so lucky to have foxes in your neighborhood. This is such a wonderful picture. You did have a great summer! I hope Autumn is equally mild (not too cold instead of not too hot). And I hope it lasts a long time.

The detail on the deer and fox are great, that must be enjoyable seeing the foxes, are they compatible with cats? I would like to have something to eat voles and rabbits in my yard. There are coyotes in the distance but I think they rarely come into my yard.

WOW! A juvenile fox! Very cool, Carver. I guess those ducks have minds of their own.

Is summer over where you are, Carver? It's still hot here in Hong Kong. In any case, I do love your critter snaps. ;)
