I went for a walk in the woods planning to take photos of birds. I imagined the swans, ducks and chickadees I would see as I followed a deer path to the river’s edge. The birds that had been singing scattered. Soon I was distracted by plants and trees. A duck swam past me and I looked up in time to see it. A beaver plopped in the river.
The woods are alive with activity! And this plant’s buds are working to become flowers. I rejoice in the beauty of the woods!
