The Beauty Around Us

It’s ALIVE!

The snow is ALIVE!  This was the thought that went through my head, when I saw the snow moving in the first part of this video.

For the best viewing experience, be sure to change video quality to HD (high definition).  Also, click full screen (the four arrows to the right of the HD selection) before viewing the video.

I was handling raw chicken tenders, when I first caught sight of this critter.  I almost gagged!

I was told the critter is a shrew, not a mole.  According to my source, in the Winter moles stay deep underground whereas shrews come to the surface.  We do appear to have tunnels in our yard.  I am no expert .. shrew, mole or vole?  I hope to capture a still photograph, where the critter can be positively identified!

    What a fun video, I was trying to figure it out myself and wouldn’t know. As you have seen by my latest post, can’t tell a mule from a horse – ha! ha!

    Looks too big to be a vole or a mole – we have both in our yard. Are you sure it is not a rat?
