Rainy day ringtail
It was raining after the clock struck one on March 6th.
That's when the ringtail came grubbing around the base of the outcrop.
In three and half minutes the camera snapped it only three times.
This location is about three quarters of a mile from the previous ringtail set, but with a home range as large of 1500 acres this ringtail could be the same animal -- though I doubt it.
It's going to take some work to get a decent portrait of this critter, but I'd settle for a mediocre picture of mother ringtail and the kids.
Soon the kids will be in tow, hopping about, exploring, and playing.
