You know how when you live in the woods you often hear noises coming from somewhere in the trees and you can almost never see whatever it is that’s making the noise?

Why is it, when you go outside in the daylight, that noise always sounds like a squirrel or a chipmunk or something small enough that you can step on it and put it out of its misery, but when you go outside at night that sound always sounds like a deer, or a coyote, or a bear, or a gorilla, or a manbearpig or a Targaryen dragon?

While you ponder that, check out the moon. iPhone astrophotography and shit.

Wild Kingdom

Remember this date everyone.  September 20, 2015 at 6:45am.  We had our first deer sighting of the season.   A doe, a deer, a female deer in the yard at the tree line.  Just hanging out, doing what ever deer do.  The groundhog also made an appearance at about 7:55am, but he suddenly is less impressive.  Wild deer will do that to a rodent, you know?

I wonder what other exotic wild forest beasts will be visiting us today?
