You may have heard me mention before about a bike trail near my house that I occasionally (but nowhere near often enough) take to when I need a little fresh air and a few calories burned. I always bring along my older, smaller camera in case there’s anything worth taking a picture of. Most of the time when I cover the mile long round trip, it’s just me and the occasional biker, jogger, or dog walker I’ll run into… though if I’m really lucky, it’s just me on the pavement.
Oh, and the critters.
Over the years, I’ve run into some fascinating beasts along this suburban safari. OK, nothing too terribly exciting… but maybe, just maybe interesting enough for a Picture Day post….
The same squirrel I led off this post with, only in a much cuter leaping pose. This is a cul de sac that dead ends into the trail…
Another squirrel along the trail who was showing me what I could kiss…
I’ve run into all kinds of kitties on my walks…. like these three who have to have been from the same litter.
A snow white cat that crossed my path a few months ago. Hey, shouldn’t that be good luck?
A gray tiger striped cat who did likewise.
Absolutely terrifying looking black cat that was wandering through the field that runs along the rural side of the trail! I think this was the cat in Hall & Oates “Maneater” video…
I’m not brave enough to take any photos of the dogs being walked… but the ones who bark at me from across the fences on the urban side of the trail… yep. Howl all you want, buddy… you’re on candid camera.
There’s no telling what four legged beastie I might come across the next time I go out for a walk. Whatever it is, I’ll do my best to capture it for you…… assuming it doesn’t kill me first.
