Kimmie and two of her kits (now grown up) dropped in this evening - I guess to say hello. (More photos on the side). Kimmie - or better known as Big Momma, is huge, and the two female youngsters with her are pretty big too! Yet they are as friendly as ever, and very easy to get along with.
Just look at those inquisitive, and trusting eyes. He (or she) showed up early one evening at the door of the retreat, said ‘hello’ (sort of) then vanished. I don’t think I ever saw him again. They are gentle creatures normally.
There is a strange perspective to this photograph. The photo looks like the camera was not held level - except the tree trunk is OK. The reason is the tree line to the right of the tree trunk is a little less than two miles away. If you magnify the image you might just be able to pick out the church steeple that appears in another photo here on the blog. The shore to the left side of the tree trunk is varies from five to about eight miles away. This is perhaps a situation that could be corrected using a view type camera with full tilt bellows. Hmmm, I wonder if the tilt control in PhotoShop might handle this properly? Photo taken November 2008.
