I want to share this photo with you that I took on our back deck several nights ago.
A raccoon emptied our squirrel-proof bird feeder the night before. The next night he brought his friend, the skunk. They were enjoying an evening snack just inches apart. When I slightly opened the glass door to get a clear shot, the raccoon left. I only took this one photo so I wouldn’t bother the skunk more than necessary
Check out the position and expression on the stone bird bath cat. Priceless.
The skunk didn’t leave a smell as a thank you.

I’m not sure I’d call skunk smell a “thank you.”
Great look on the bird bath cat’s face!
Here’s a photo my wife Lois took of a skunk in our backyard posing next to a soapstone sculpture of a skunk I’m working on.
Skunks seem to have a thing about posing next to rock sculptures. Curious, don’t you think?
Interest critters, skunks. Smell and all. /Gary
