Amazingly, I spotted him first (long after he spotted me.)
It was the shape that caught my eye, not his colour. What is amazing about that is that I spotted the female, below, second, even though she was, you’d think, more visible.
She kept mousing, but eventually went back to hunt near what looks like her year-old pup.
Abandoned hayfields are good for everyone.

On our farm, we have a small diagonal ridge, perhaps 90 metres long and 30 wide that we don’t allow the renter to mow. It functions as a wildlife corridor and old-growth grass field.
