Hiking with a Tufted Titmouse, Box Turtle, Squirrel and Chipmunk
Due to the extreme temperatures I have been hiking much earlier in the morning. The limited light often makes it difficult to photograph the many beautiful sights. I have begun to see another world as the rays of the rising sun crests the surrounding Mountains.
Colorful Flowers glow in the half light along fences as I hike toward North Mountain. Small shadows take shape as I move closer, a Chipmunk climbing on the rocks and a Squirrel foraging in the grass. A faint song draws me closer and I can see a lovely little Tufted Titmouse chick grooming on the branch above me. A lump on the trail ahead of me comes into focus and it is beautiful Box Turtle stretching it’s neck.
So much is revealed in the light of a new morning, Nature lifts my Spirit…
Love to ALL!
