Life through the Lens (24 October 2021)

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

Prairie Dog. All you Americans will be able to tell me – is this actually a rat, not a dog? I had my suspicions when I threw a stick for it.

    1. jeez, I can’t remember how far away I was. It was a farm here that opened to the public. Unusual animals: buffalo, rhea, these. We do have a few buffalo farms here as people extoll their meat over beef.

      We have to worry about rats here, btw. Especially as we keep chickens so there is food available.

        1. They are common here, unfortunately. I could do with borrowing your dogs for the afternoon. Reuben (boy cat) brought one in, once. Dead, fortunately. We had to stop putting bird food out because of the rats.

    1. Oh, unrelated. Notification settings are on your “profile” page. Hit the round icon of “you” in the top right. In the menu on the left, one of the options is “Notification Settings. One of the options is “site achievements”. Presumably there is some similar navigation in the iOS app?

  1. Prairie dogs are so cute. We have them all over here, but they stay in the fields mostly, or empty lots in town. We’ve had them come in the yard a time or two. We have here a whole part of a park set aside for them called Prairie Dog Town, and instead of a ground hog predicting the weather in Feb. it’s Prairie Dog Pete here. 😉

    1. oh wow! that sounds like great fun. So do they “do” anything or do they just co-exist? I’ve got a vague recollection that there might have been a family of them here, but they were definitely isolated. They don’t exist here.
