Native Fauna





A friend of mine, who shall by necessity remain nameless, lives on the edge of civilization in Santa Fe. At the fringe of the veldt. A mountain surrounded by pristine nature. He has a 24 hour still/video camera hooked up on his back porch. I stopped up there one day and took some bird pictures.


Lots of wildlife come down daily to drink out of his fountain. When I was there he showed me some incredible video of a bear visit in the middle of the night.


This morning a mother deer brought a fawn down for the first time this year.



 He is regularly visited by a gray fox, a gorgeous animal.



A coyote and bobcat wait their turns for a drink.



The black bear around there can get huge, this is a little one. He showed me pictures of a big one.


I'd say my friend is pretty lucky to live where he does.
