47158312311_9651b0b24b_kLittle Miss Muddy Muzzle: Our cairn terriers are working terriers. They dig constantly outdoors to keep our home safe from voles and other woodland critters. (“Terrier” means “earth dog.”) Consequently, they often wear the badge of mud on their muzzles, as Brunhilde is doing here. Photo made Feb. 20, 2019. Nikon D500, AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G, ƒ/3, 40mm (DX 60mm), 1/30th sec., ISO 1600.

47099816611_db3c28a172_kSquirrel! We’ve given up on bird feeders for now. Bears tear them down, and squirrels raid them, too. Now we just spread seed out on a bench on the deck, and for the most part squirrels get it. Picture made Feb. 14, 2019, through a living room window. Nikon D500, Taamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 lens, ƒ/11, 260mm (DX 390mm), 1/125th sec., ISO 800.
