This is the view from outside one of our buildings: So Cal sunset on the mountains.
We have all kinds of wildlife, mostly inimical and retiring, like our rattlesnakes. (Rattlesnakes not shown.)
Some of the wildlife is the ubiquitous fluffy bunny.
Some of it couldn't give a toss about humans, although I think this little critter was beginning to resent me after I took a few too many photos.
...at least judging by the way he was 'smiling' at me.
Some of the W.L. picks up the pieces after the inimical ones do their killing. (Actually, it's probably the main road in the valley that does most of the fluffy bunny and raccoon killing.)
We have a lot of vultures.
No, I mean really a *lot* of vultures.
Like that. And that's just one tree.
And I guess we have a lot of mistletoe too. As in the photo above, it really shows up in the winter, when it's green and leafy and the sycamores aren't. It's a hemiparasite. When the sap rises in spring and the sycamore leaves grow to shade it, it's parasitic. In winter it stays green and makes its own food.
