(See the Products page for more information)
Once again the planet wobbles like a
child's top at the end of the its spin
and the axis tips away from the sun.
Heeding the declining light, animals
begin preparing for the winter,
building warm nests for denning and
storing food in their larders.
Predators that must be abroad all
winter begin growing a thick  coat of
fur. With the first snows the young of
these species must learn the habit of
economy of motion in the newly
covered surface.
Winter is a great time for trackers.
The life hidden in the foliage and the
night shows itself in the tracks and
trails of creatures that are all around
us but live so discreetly that their
presence otherwise may not be
suspected.
