I'm not the only person in this house who enjoys taking photographs. My husband is actually a pretty good shot himself, and when I woke up this morning, I came downstairs to find that both he and George were gone and the camera was missing. And not only was the camera missing, but the zoom lens was as well.
Now, this is a big step for my husband, because he never changes lenses or settings on the camera. He just picks it up and shoots. But it seems that he is getting adventurous. And I find this very interesting. Don't tell him that. I don't want it going to his head.
When they returned from their morning walk, my husband had a story about a fox that George had spooked up and I wish I could have been there to see it. Fox like to play, you all know that one, right? Well, this fox darted out of the woods and ran up the fenceline and George chased him, running alongside. They ran like this for a while. The fox knows that George isn't allowed into the horse paddocks. I don't know how the fox knows this, but it does. So they're running up the fenceline together, not 3 feet apart from each other, and the fox stops. Just stops. George runs on about 30 feet or so and realizes that Mr. Fox is not next to him anymore. The fox waits until George gets it, and starts running back the other way! Ran right under the fence and into the woods. It happened so fast that George actually looked surprised, my husband said. Outfoxed, he was!
I love looking at pictures that someone else takes, especially my husband's. I try to figure out where he was standing when he took them and I see the farm in a whole new way, through his pictures. I chose these as a sampling I'd like to share with you of my husband's walk with George on an early Spring morning in April. These were taken before 8 am, which is when I got up. I like to sleep in until 8 am on Sunday.
