“There is a love of wild nature in everybody, an ancient mother-love showing itself whether recognized or no, and however covered by cares and duties” ~J Muir
I took a walk yesterday on a trail near my home. The abundant rain has created a carpet of green growth and the wildflowers and insects were having a field day. 🙂 I was chasing around these shockingly orange butterflies that refused to land for more than a second and was unable to get even one shot of them so decided to focus elsewhere. Everything is just so lush now…..going off the trail path means wading through green brush. I try to be careful where I walk for 2 reasons: one, not to just indiscriminately trudge through what nature has created and two, RATTLESNAKES. While not as common as in the desert, they are here in Prescott and that is about the last thing I’d want to have to go through!
