I've already passed berries on a strong vine and can hear frogs jumping into the pond. I've spotted deer and other wildlife tracks along the way. When I circle past the energy path I spot a female red-winged blackbird and a deer crossing the meadow.
The female bird is playing a game of hide-n-seek among the cattails while the doe forages for food at pond's end. It's with baited breath I stand among them, watching in their quietude.
