The berries are drying up and there’s only been one pie… perhaps someone’s been a bit too keen to tame the vines? They DO have a tendency to take over though.
Then again there were lots of bodies enjoying them… “you lookin’ at me?”
Quite a few of these whispy, twisty sorts of things out there.
The red shouldered hawk in the alder across the street. Looks like he might have had his eye on something interesting. Could it be the ground squirrel digging a burrow into the bank? I’m hoping those talons are ready to take care of something that might get to be a bit of a nuisance. A nice lunch for a hawk perhaps?
I think (once upon a time) I knew what these were, but the mind is getting a bit fuzzy around the edges.
An interesting visitor to the rug I had airing on the deck. He/she seemed utterly fascinated with the rug. Flying away, but quickly returning.
He went that-a-way….
I realized that If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes.
In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia. Real freedom lies in wildness, not in civilization.
