Zen foxes…

leave a comment »

Roeselien Raimond is a Dutch nature photographer who specializes in taking beautiful photos of wild foxes,  and he has two series of gorgeous photos up on boredpanda.com,  here   and  here.

My part of the South has always had far more gray foxes than red,  but now we have even fewer because of the encroaching coyotes,  so I am always especially delighted when one of the granddaddy red foxes trots out of my woods to check on the availability of a critter buffet.

Anti-mosquito…

leave a comment »

If you’re worried about mosquito-borne diseases,  Consumer Reports has done some testing on the best sprays for your family,  so you  may find this useful.  Of course,  you also need to make sure there is no standing water anywhere in your yard.  Get rid of all the saucers beneath you plant pots, and change your pet’s water daily.
