While sitting on the deck with my morning coffee a few days back, I was distracted when a crow circled overhead.
I watched to see where he'd land, and there, among the potatoes and the pumpkins sat a Bald Eagle.
A deer had been hit on the highway and the scent of fresh meat drew them in for breakfast. I had almost hoped that the deer had not been dragged to the edge of the field, just so I could watch the meat-eaters feast on the carcass. It would have been an oppertune time to set up a trail camera. I may even had captured photos of bear, bobcat, coyote, wolves, the cougar and the eagles and crows.
The crow had landed on this branch full of spruce cones, but I was not quick enough to get the perfect shot.
A walk around the yard and my senses were filled with color.
The first was a last Colombine hiding under the leaves of a shrub.
Around the corner of the house, a busy Cottontail was munching on his breakfast of clover leaves, as fast as he could nibble.
Reed Canarygrass sways next to the driveway~
as well as the bells of the spiked flower of Ladybells.
The Black-capped Chickadees are so busy right now,
playing their part as ' seed savers.'
Young lads are measuring up to~the length of a single Reed Canarygrass~~~~~~~~
and they are surprised to see they tower far above them.
A forgotten and unknown pink rose was found between the white climbers...it was a sweetly scented surprise.
Before my walk around the yard had ended for the day,
a blue dragonfly settled on the garden hook ' just long enough '
to have it's photo taken....just for you.
Life IS as great as GOD.
