have you noticed the pecking order in nature.
this example has to do with a few birds.
looking out the back door
i see buzzards
on the ground.
i see a hawk (the Red-shouldered kind).
he swoops down and chases the buzzards away.
(i wasn't fast enough to get a picture of THAT, you'll have to take my word for it)
enter the crows.
who proceed to
chase away the hawk.
they take over the yard.
one crow calls from the treetop...that the coast is clear!
for the time being...the crows rule the yard.
until they get tired of it and move along.
then the whole routine repeats itself!
maybe one day i'll see them ALL together!
getting along. sharing.
(nah. i doubt it.)
it's that time of year
when the Banana spider (Golden Orb)
weaves her web between the trees.
nothing like wandering through the yard or woods,
and getting slapped in the face by a sticky web.
then frantically brushing at yourself,
hoping the spider didn't land on your back or in your hair.
another good reason to carry a big stick...
waving it in front of yourself as you head down your path.
i'll leave you with a moon shot!
that moon shot is courtesy of Bart Simpson.
this one's from me.
