It's time for Friday's Hunt again. Today I am hunting to find time, as usual. It has been a crazy busy week with working until midnight most nights. I have a bit of respite from work this coming weekend but the weekend itself is busy with cleaning and organizing my former home in Nova Scotia to get it ready for the real estate market. Then it will be back to the grind on Monday.
Fortunately, I managed to take a few pictures for today's hunt. The prompts from Eden Hills are:
Starts with V
Vermin starts with V. The term vermin usually refers to animals or birds that cause a significant nuisance. This little raccoon probably falls into the vermin category in the minds of most people. It is a significant nuisance because he (or she) eats my bird seed and damages the bird feeders.
On the other hand, I think this is a really cute example of vermin, despite it being a nuisance.
There's a look in its eye, as if to say "What....I wasn't doing anything? Why are you staring at me?"
See? I'm just doing my exercise routine. Nothing to do with the suet feeder. Nope.
Usually this little vermin visits after dark, but on a very wet and rainy day earlier this week, he/she was there earlier in the day while there was still light for these pictures.
My favourite picture this week is courtesy of Mitten, our cat. He was nestled in the shelving unit inside our closet - when Marc opened the closet door, he found Mitten comfortably sleeping in there. He called me up to take a picture and Mitten stayed in place for this cute shot.
Here's the overall view of how he looked when the closet door was opened. Funny cat!
I'm excited to say that it is moth season again! I'm always interested in taking pictures of moths that visit our screened-in porch. I leave the light on overnight and it tends to attract moths who rest there and I photograph those that remain in the morning. This moth has wings that are just about an inch across (from top to bottom as seen in the picture below). It is the Northern Thorn moth (Selenia alcipherea) and it visited my porch this morning. Hooray for the start of moth season!
