Rainy days aren't always good for bloggers but today turned out pretty well. I decided to scout out around my father-in-law's pond to see if I could see any sign of beavers. Early in the morning, our neighbor found a beaver in his pond which adjoins this one.
I've only seen one beaver before. That was during a huge flood and the beaver was sitting on one of the few dry spots in town.
I really didn't expect to find the beaver this morning, but it provided a good excuse to walk out in the rain.
bluejays warned the other birds of my coming though most quickly became accustomed to me standing around.
Hidden worlds could be seen in each droplet precariously hanging form thorn-barbed branches.
I loved the lines of this tree standing stalwart against against the intermittent rain showers.
With wet shoes and my camera protected under my coat, I continued into the foggy woods toward the muted scream of a red-tail hawk perched not far above me. If I find him I will show you tomorrow.
