hot summer day beckoned
i headed to the forest in search of a rookery a friend told me about
from the tree tops
wonderful strange sounds filled the air
the calls of Sand Hill Cranes
*Later: not Sand Hill Cranes, they are Blue Herons*
do you see the chicks head (high center)
i know it is hard to see:
at the base of three different trees i found eggs from the chicks in shades of light blue
the warm day inspired a sweet heavy scent of flowers
inside these little bells
was quite a surprise:
and fruit to fill the air
I wandered on
at the above spot....
a large crashing sound of a spooked animal filled the air
i think we scared one another
most likely moose or bear
and beautifully colored mushrooms
I hope you enjoyed your wander with me.
I sure did.
thank you Elaine
