Default unwelcome visitors & small creek

These aren't anything fantastic. The first is shot out our back door. The path of our unwelcome visitors that have shacked up in the attic. We hear them every morning about 5 a.m. Something small must have eaten the bait in the trap (have-a-heart one). Need to rebait it so we can get them a new home.

The second is just from an outing yesterday. A small creek in the woods. A lot of this snow is gone today as it was warm enough to rain this morning. But, I think we are getting more by the end of the week.

The third is one of the visitors. This was shot through a very dirty window and it was hazy out this morning due to the rain with the Tamron 70-300 at 300mm handheld. I tried opening the window after this shot to get a clearer shot and use the window as a tripod, but he saw me and ran off.

Nice pics Patty! You have my sympathies with your visitors. We have squirrels living in our garage, and they are remarkably destructive. I have so much junk cluttering up the garage that it's nearly impossible to evict them.

Love the pictures. You can keep your visitors - while I don't have any living in the house (well, I should check under the house, haven't been down there in a couple of months) there are some that live near-by. They will use the roof as a playground, especially early in the morning so you can't sleep in. They are cute, though.

I know, Patty. Between the squirrels , opossums and rats, we have a heck of a time keeping them out of the attic and from under the house.

Great clear shot of the squirrel tracks, and lovely little stream! Good luck with evicting your "upstairs tenants!"
