Nature Lover

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."
~Native American Proverb

"Let us a little permit Nature to take her own way; she better understands her own affairs than we." ~Michel de Montaigne




This is a photo of Kolke Creek which is not too far from where our log cabin is located. Can you see the animal tracks in the snow? Perhaps from a rabbit or squirrel. I'm looking forward to going back and catching a glimpse of my wildlife friends.

Our animal neighbors are fascinating to watch and listen too, aren't they? This morning the turkeys are gobbling up a storm out in the woods. Snow is gone now so I don't see the tracks, but they are making their prescence known!

Simply beautiful! Let us know what you find!

The crocus picture is great! The close up view shows such beautiful patterns within!

One of the many reasons I enjoy your blog is that we usually can count on a great outdoor shot! The fresh animal tracks on the snow is cool! Dave got several pictures like that when we were in Yellowstone this Winter!

Wow that looks amazing, mind you I am glad that the winter has gone here and we are now coming into spring.

Just a little something from Judy said...

When I saw this picture part of me felt sad to see the last signs of Winter. I like those little foot prints, and the picture. I look forward to ALL of your outdoor shots.

I always loved living in the country in the winter. It was so fun to go out into the woods after a freshly fallen snow, looking for animal tracks...

Beautiful photo!

I love seeing animal tracks in the snow, Shelley... We didn't get much snow here this winter, but one winter, after we had quite a bit of snow, we saw all kinds of critter-tracks in the snow. It was fun to watch.

Great picture.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Shelley,

Lovely photo, and the quotations are very appropriate.

I managed to post photos of those crocuses on my blog, by the way. They are identical to the one in your photo. Check it out when you get a chance!

Have a great weekend,
John

Was just thinking how nice a subject that photo would be for a painting. Not by me, though. LOL I have trouble with trees! LOL
