If you look closely
I learned a long time ago, that if you look closely, you can see all kinds of great things.
We left the mountains on Monday. Al is up to his eyeballs in “stuff” at his shop, and needed some help going through said “stuff.” But in the few days we were up there, I went walking with the dogs and explored. Torrey did her own kind of exploring, mostly for small critters. Thankfully, she has a very good recall, stop, and drop that.
One morning we left the dogs home and went walking to a small aspen grove I had found the night before. I could hear so many birds there, I thought I could get some good photos.
I could hear them all around, but only saw one or two to take photos of. Sneaky little things.
There had been some rain the night before, and these little plants were still holding drops that looked like crystal.
Al looked closely high up on the hill, and spotted this mama deer. We watched her for a little while and could see a tiny baby, still wobbly on his legs. We think she must have just had the baby. She was well beyond my telephoto, but you can kinda see tiny ears if you look towards her rear end. I would have loved to get better photos, but it wasn’t worth disturbing her.
I also saw this awesome moth. He was pretty big actually, as you can see compared to the leaf he was clinging to.
You only have to look to find the hidden things in nature.
