I know, I know.  I should be stitching hearts in February, but there are so many snowmen patterns that continue to sing siren songs to me.  I'll stitch up a heart or two as well.  I promise.

We downloaded our January 2013 Trail Camera pictures over the weekend.
January was a quieter month - fewer pictures, fewer animals.  

We did have an opossum stroll by (lower right between the two stakes).

And even with Dorothy's Creek flowing strongly...

...the deer continue to ford the creek. 

Lots of raccoons - there are two in this photo.  One on the bottom left, the other in the center.  

Have you ever seen a deer's eyeball this close?
She has a lovely set of lashes.

I do think that maybe we 'captured' a new animal this month.
To the left of the tree...I think it is a fox.

Mama Deer strolls by...

...followed by Baby Deer.

And here's one of our bobcats.  Note the time: just as twilight is becoming daylight.

That's a really cute snowman, and definitely worth stitching in any month :-) I always love your Trail Camera shots, thanks for sharing.

The deer was surely having a good look at the camera. Your new animal certainly looks like a fox judging by the tail.

Very sweet finish, Beth--and how is it that a deer gets such great eyelashes!? I'm jealous!!

You're right, snowmen are begging to be stitched, but so are hearts. I'm solving that dilemma by stitching snowmen with hearts ;-)

Thanks for sharing the trail cam pics too.

I so enjoy the trail photos. I love your little snowman with the cardinal. That is probably the only bird I miss since we have none here.

I love the snowmen! Any charts in the stash with hearts and snowmen?
I always love your trailcam posts.

Heeeheee! I do believe she wanted to kiss your camera. lol
Cute little snowman! Though the real star, of course, is the cardinal. :)
