Here's another critter we had visit in February.

It's a weasel in his winter clothes. In Norwegian weasels are called røyskatt, which translates to "cairn cat", røys = a pile of loose stones (cairn) and katt = cat. "Røyskatt" is a much cuter name than "weasel" imo.

I'll henceforth (try to remember to) call weasels cairn cats.

Love the wildlife shots. Dala and I are similarly blessed with various interesting neighbors where we live. On the more mundane end, I tend to arrive to work a little early as I find it's less stressful to get to work before rush hour and relax in the parking lot listening to the news than trying to deal with a million crazy drivers out there. Right now there's a baby rabbit that lives in some brush near the parking lot and I'm lucky to see him for a moment or two almost every morning as he wanders around looking for food. He's my favorite, but I also enjoy watching the song birds in the early morning swooping down to catch insects too.
