Freeloaders Scavenge For Food

I never know what I’m going to see on my afternoon walk.  Last week before the snow I was startled to see these two guys right next to the road greedily lapping up fallen berries from the Mountain Ash tree.  They were so intent on scavenging fermented fruit they barely gave me pause.  Later the moose cow and calf staggered over to the far edge of  lawn and took a snooze.  After dark they were spotted along the lake shore contemplating whether or not to walk onto a floating dock.  I hope they decided not.

  2. I’m waiting for those big buggers to start eating my trees, they will be in for a big surprise! Firecrackers 🙂

  3. Ha ha! Just checked back and read your comment, Gail. Now I’m ROFLOL at the image I have of you carrying out your threat! The battle goes on…

  4. I was shoveling snow by the separate garage near the garden and noticed that those two trashed MY little Mountain Ash tree, the branches are all broken! Sneaky buggers…….
