Trying to survive cabin fever!!

I work hard at surviving cabin fever. I have been trying to get out camping all winter and nothing. Have gone out to take pictures of wildlife and again nothing.  Was so happy the other day that I saw some wildlife appear, saw an eagle, some hawks, some waterfowl and yes some gophers.
