Baby Skunks!

Sorry this isn't a clearer picture - at sunset a family of skunks were scrounging around for bugs and things. I was in my car, on the ranch, but wary - as you might imagine. So didn't want to get too close.

These were the CUTEST things!

4 little ones with their Mother. They set out in single file across the grass airstrip on the ranch, and we wondered what they were. The Mother kept counting them and hustling them single file ... but one kept making a break for it! He was SO funny. I am SURE he was a he, he was just too headstrong and energetic. After a while he scooted off to the pond. I think the Mother gave up.

This was in June I think.
