sunsets and cricket and more rambling
I couldn't decide on which picture to post so I put both of them on here :O) hope you enjoy them.
Cricket enjoying the stream :O) I think that she is part lab or something because she really likes the water. It looks deeper than you might think. I jumped over it and she thought she needed to be on the other side too, jumped right in and barely made it across. I made her a bridge out of some boards but I forgot to take a picture of her crossing over it. When she went across it you could see on her face and actions that she thought that it was pretty cool to get across the stream without getting wet. lol
We also saw a few animals while we were hiking around, one evening we saw a hen grouse with 2 little babies, she was doing the fake hurt bird thing trying to lead us away from her babies that where scrambling down the mountain side. The stood about 2 inch's high but they sure could move.. The hen stayed about 5 to 10 feet away from us the whole time until we took another path away from them so she could go round them up again :O)
then just yester day we saw a deer as we were walking down the road, it wasn't but 20 ft from us and there we all stood looking at each other like who is going to make the first move. I did, i reached for the camera and that's all it took, the moment was gone :) he took to the hills.
This morning I was cleaning up camp and putting things away, took the humming bird feeder down to rinse it out and while i was squatting there with the bottom of the feeder in my hand at head level I heard a humming bird that was real close!! looked up and there he was trying to get a drink out of it, we looked at each other eye to eye
about 12 inches from each other lol I didn't know if he was going to poke my eye out or what for taking away his lunch buffet. :O) I would loved to have had a picture of that.
