Footprints in the Snow

Winter has started, so I have been looking at footprints. Sometimes, I even photograph them before the noses come along to check things out. The rabbit above, and the mouse below are good examples. The mouse trail, from one burrow to the other, was almost trampled before I captured it.

I am guessing this is a cat, partly from the location.

Same area, but I am not sure if this is a crow or a gull. Could be either.

But I am sure these are goose footprints. Partly from the waddle, and partly the location.

These are such fun photos! Good for you for taking them before they were trampled on.

Really nice photos - I wish we has some snow here instead of rain and wind!

Nice. Tracks are one of the most basic of signs, what Peirce called "the indexical mode in semiotics."
