I was planning to capture a few pictures of the MINI E in the beautiful evening light that occurs right around sunset. As I uncovered the car I could see that it was positively glowing. I unlocked the door, and as I prepared to open it, I saw this:
I know the picture is not great. I was more focused on not startling my new friend.
After I got back inside the house, I noticed that he was not alone…
It turns out that he was part of a family – four little ones and an adult. They wandered all around 019, obviously enamored with the design and the minimal environmental impact.
From their vantage point the car is all tires and undercarriage. I am sure they noticed that there was no exhaust system (being experts on noxious emissions). Even though they cannot see the solar charging system I am certain that their sensitive noses could tell that this car is really sweet smelling. I am glad they left it that way.
I think these skunks might have French ancestors as they appear to like escargot. We are amateur escargot ranchers here, and I am hoping that these fine examples of Mephitis mephitis will soon wipe out this season’s herd, and then move on.
