At least I think deer left these tracks. The trail starts off-shot, where the critter entered the garden after crossing the street. Note to real photographers: Look! An S-curve!

Here’s more detail on the compost bin. I’d guess the deer was attracted by the unrotted squash vines on top of the heap, and not the ready-for-spreading near-soil at the bottom.

Strange, the ceaseless activity of living beings that we would never have sensed, were the snow not to have instrumented the garden. Strictly from hunger…

Oh, and maybe I should worry about those dried-out but not rotted squash vines. I wonder if I’ve created a nice habitat for pests to set up house and home in?
