Ready . . . Aim . . .

But this skunk, captured in the back yard on the game camera at 1:22 a.m. today, didn't fire. I'm posting this photo as a public service to inform clueless city slickers that if a skunk should present its posterior in this manner, it is most advantageous to vacate the premises with alacrity, as Henry James would have said.


  1. So did you vacate the premises with alacrity - or did you hang round to get the shot?

  2. I didn't have to ... the photo was taken with a motion-detector game camera tied to a stump overnight while I slept in safety in the cabin.
