My most memorable experience with a wild creature in the forest.
In this photo she is looking down and listening for mice under the snow
As I searched for chickadees and squirrels there she was sitting on a branch
no more then six feet above me, she did not seem to mind me at all, I spent
almost 2 hours with her until my fingers could no longer move !
It was around -20Celsius that day.
