We have lived in our home overlooking Crow Canyon for the last 44 years. During that time several wild animals have visited our spacious backyard, mostly squirrels and raccoons with an occasional skunk. We even had a quick brown fox drop by one day a few months ago. Then there’s this critter who jumped over our fence about a year ago and decided to homestead in the bushes on top of our hill.
Once a day she ventures closer to our house and nibbles on the loquats that fall in our yard from the neighbor’s tree behind the fence. Sometimes she sits and relaxes by the fence in the shade provided by the loquat tree. I took this shot a couple of weeks ago and thought it would be appropriate for Leanne’s Wild theme in this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge.
Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website this Thursday (Wednesday if you live in Europe or North America) to see how Leanne and other photographers from all over the world have interpreted the wild theme.
Happy Fourth of July!
