Rana spent most of yesterday with Lady. At dinnertime, we decided to feed Maia first and see if Rana wanted to follow to spend time with Maia or stay with Lady.
Unsurprisingly, Maia was by the pond (in 4). We headed that way slowly, keeping an eye on Rana. Rana seemed happy to follow. She was in a very affectionate and sweet mood all day yesterday, so we proceeded slowly and kept the four-wheeler within her line of sight on the way to the pond.
Kat was watching Rana and was on photo duty, while Scott drove the 4wheeler and kept his eyes peeled for Maia. At one point, Scott was idling the four-wheeler, waiting for Rana to catch up when Maia very quietly poked her head around a bush from about 60 yards away.
It was almost like peek-a-boo Maia. She was utterly still, not moving or coming towards her food. She had a weird smile on her face as she watched her humans closely. Once Scott started driving again, Maia headed straight for the food mobile as she typically does.
