Having left many tracks on Sunday, I though I would post some other tracks today.

I am sure that these are raccoon tracks and they are near sunflower seed shells as the racoon was attempting to steal from my birdfeeder again. It was unsucessful this time.

By size and shape and toe drag, I am assuming these are crow tracks. I am open to corrections if anyone knows better than I.

I am calling this one "Sun Tracks" as it is left behind the setting sun.

That's quite a stunning sunset. We only had one snow this year that let us see any of the tracks in the yard. I'd say that top one does look like raccoon, just like the ones left by the raccoon we had here on our one snow day.

Fantastic sunset - beautiful photo! I love the tracks - so clear in the pristine snow. No snows for us to spot tracks, but we did have a raccoon come by recently to check out our back porch - first one in years. I think that, because of our prolonged drought, animals are coming in to the city to seek sustenance.

As always great photos. I keep clicking away at tracks but couldn't figure out a good way to do anything with them.

I always enjoy checking after a fresh snow to see who has been visiting.

The sunset is really something special!

RD, I had the camera almost on the ground to get the right angle for that sunset. I was pleased with how it turned out.

PT, The snow is hardly pristine but did look better in the photo than in real life.

E, Snow tracks seem difficult to capture with photos.

R, Thanks!

N, Rain today has washed almost every bit of snow away. It will be difficult to see tracks in most places now.
