9. you're welcome
that was a (I think) big male, I'm too slow on the camera draw - but three females (again I think) and 4 little ones had passed in front of me - two big ones, including the one in the pic brought up the rear, but then at the last minute turned back and went around behind the truck. They had their hackles and rump hairs all standing up.

This was about 1/4 mile from the house - see them on this hill pretty often and I think they come closer at night just to piss the dogs off.

8. After being out there
I'm pretty jealous. Though I would probably wilt in the summer. I enjoyed the Sunny and 80 degrees it was when I was out there.
