Michael Durham, who happens to be one gifted wildlife photographer -- recently clicked some crystal clear images of red tree voles.
Read about his project here, and feast your eyes on these special rodents of our great Douglas fire forests.
It's also good to know these little canopy crawlers are subjects of ongoing scientific research.
Adventures in camera trapping and zoology, with frequent flashbacks and blarney of questionable relevance.

Getting cabin fever.
We've gotten but half the average rainfall we should have at this time of year.
But I'm not complaining
To keep the show going I'm posting this brief video of a bobcat getting it on with a little castoreum and synthetic catnip oil.
