So cute. And he looks like he's about to be eaten by a giant claim. :D Actually, do we even know if the babies are male or female?

That's just amazing and beautiful. What a great tableau.

Another great shot. I wish I could get pics of the Moon like that.

Looks like he made a nest out of a cinder block, which is pretty smart. Especially if there are any Big Bad Wolves in the area. :D

Europa was behind Jupiter at that point. It was fairly good viewing and better than the next night which was slightly overcast.

That looks so cool. What's in the new castle? The castle in the first picture appears to be a store.

A rather medieval chapel is in the main building- complete with a couple of Crusaders inside. Off to the side is a tavern.

I think that's a groundhog. He might see his shadow.

Isn't that weird? It's too bad we can't get it bronzed or something. At least I got a couple of decent pictures.

Well, I've seen him on the ground and I've seen him in the hedges. Maybe he's of mixed ancestry.
