This week I have used photos from another source (see below for credits).
It's finally summer and the body count is rising exponentially here. This past week I was able to observe and photograph Zorro while he hunted. I posted that here and here and at Flickr. Today I thought I would share with you the mammals that my cats catch in the meadows and woods of Vermont The cats catch, between all of them, only about one bird per summer. Birds are much more difficult to catch. Why catch a bird when the mammals are so plentiful and easy to get?
Jumping Woods Mouse
Zorro caught a Meadow Jumping Mouse this evening. They are much larger and lighter in color.
Below: a Brown Bat like the one the cats wanted to catch two summers ago:
Most photos are from mammalwatching.com.
I hope you all have a delightful week. It's summertime!
