At times we feel that gophers are taking over our grove. Not because of their size of course, but their numbers. They burrow everywhere but are most destructive when they go to work on the hillsides. A decent rain will collapse the burrows and cause incredible erosion. We try various means to get rid of them...traps work best. Oh, the life of a farmer.
And here are a few camera shots. I've used the one below several times. I'm admiring one of my brother-in-law's large cameras.
Debra, using my small camera, after hers fell into a pile of yak dung in Tibet....not your ordinary camera incident. Thanks to her excellent eye, we had much better photos of the travel experience than we would have had with me using the camera.
