From a photographer’s point of view, Stubby can be a challenge. He’s difficult to “pattern”: sometimes he’s out of sight for a day or two; sometimes he’s crepuscular, feeding in the dim light of early morning and late evening; sometimes, like today, he’s out in the middle of the yard in the mid-day sun running in circles, from seed to seed. He’s also becoming more adventurous, investigating stone walls, brush piles and other habitats beyond his original cruising radius. In any event, he lives, and life is good.
