After eating Chinese Saturday evening the family and I went to a local nature preserve. Turkey vultures circling above the mountains and deer grazing in a small clearing were but two living creatures we'd seen before entering the preserve. The sun was shining and the breeze waxed gentle across our skin.
Our daughter took down a footpath with her bike beneath her while my husband and I went down another path to a small pond filled with frogs. There was a distinct comfort surrounding each of us as we parted. My husband went in search of archaeological finds as I snapped pictures of unsuspecting frogs.
Before evening closed its eyes on the last bits of daylight I was able to film two frogs mating and another sounding its chorus (check video in sidebar for the latter). Evening's eyelids are heavier now as we walk back along the earlier path. It's there our daughter sees her first bat flying in open sky.
