I got to go ‘birding’ again last week. We hiked along a little string of lakes and wetlands and listened for birds… My most interesting find was the American Three-toed Woodpecker, apparently not a common find for most people—yay! I spotted something (though I had to be told what it was!)
I must confess I was soon distracted by things more easily seen and photographed–
like this “White Bog Orchid”…
And these sweet fairy bells—”Twinflowers”
And by the last stop I found myself stalking unidentified butterflies and dragonflies through a meadow-like marsh quite oblivious to birdsong…
And all this before ten in the morning.
Wonderful way to start the day!
Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. Ps.40:5 KJV
