  They show up every winter. Hang out in the meadow behind my house. Scares my dog half to death. And, sometimes me, too! :)

Good eye, Professor. :)

His buddy is lying down right next to him. There are 5 of them sleeping out in that area, inside the city limits, which makes me happy as no harm can come to them from hunters.
