Corralitas Drive: Meet Stampy

Photo: Diane Edwardson, June 27, 2012, 10:08 PM.  Stampy is a regular visitor to our yard.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Stampy is a very small skunk, but not a baby.  In fact I wonder if she's a dwarf.  Usually, the skunks in this neighborhood are very large.  We called her Stampy because she stamps around like a big animal in the crunchy leaves in the yard.  I wonder if she's the same skunk I shot photos of last summer.  She is a very pretty skunk.

Luckily for me, she is still unclear on the concept of pointing the business end at me when I'm taking photos.  She seems to be foraging for beans fallen off the rubber trees that all the other neighborhood wildlife eat too.
