Making Tracks

Treebeard and I weren't the only ones out making tracks in the snow today...

Which way to go?? One indecisive squirrel or two squirrels, back to back, ready to pace off for a duel ;)
 

We followed this kitty for quite some distance. I think it may be the momma cat that has taken up in our wood pile. Haven't decided yet what to do about her and her two kittens.
 

A couple of turkeys went for a wander through the woods. We followed them for quite some distance, too.

My other photos of prints and tracks didn't come out too well. Taking pictures in snow is a bit challenging for me.

There! You see? Snow has its rewards, after all. Most of these critters would pass undetected, if not for the tracks they leave in snow. I am always amazed by how much activity there actually is out there.

I tried to take pics of tracks too -- haven't looked at them yet, I wonder if any are useable. It's difficult to focus white on white! I couldn't believe it when I saw how far one of the cats trekked from the house, because they seem absolutely appalled and horrified by the snow. It's a good thing they are Southern cats.

Great snow images. Sometimes hard to catch.

Your photos (the ones that turned out) are beautiful.

Swampy-- congratulations! I'm accepting your guess as the "most correct" in the recent challenge at Foothills Fancies. If you email your address to me at ffnaturalist AT gmail (com), I'll send it out to you. Details at the post revealing the challenge answer.

I like the track photos too.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words. Snow tracks are very challenging to photograph, but they are very fun to follow!
