After the Rain
After a night and morning of rain, I took the sheep out for a walk this afternoon. The longer I looked, the more I noticed, and the more questions I had.

A very wet and tired bumble bee struggled to get to the top of a zinnia.
It seemed oblivious to the tiny white crab spider already in the flower.
A Gulf coast toad found a home in a miniature gully.
A small hawk flew over our heads as we approached, and watched us for a few seconds. I only got one picture before it flew off.
Look closer at the stalk of this uprooted mushroom –
– it’s really a caterpillar!
I spotted an abandoned nest. What species built it?
When I zoomed in on this picture –
I saw this millipede incorporated into the side! How did it get there? Are those some kind of little eggs above it?
These almost glowed against the dark fallen leaves.
I love the dark colors and textures of the leaves.
I heard the geese flying over today, so fall can’t be far behind!
