I purposely went for a walk this morning while it was still overcast and dreary. The air was soft and cool and the cows and birds were just beginning to speak their mind about the morning. The cows didn’t seem too happy, although I couldn’t see the source of their problem. I’m sure the birds were talking to me and complaining that all of their feeders are wet. I’ll take care of that shortly.
The reason I went walking early was so that I could capture some of the “less than lovely” views of the morning. We had rain, rain, rain yesterday and everything is soaked. The flowers are drooping. The hay is wet. There are mushrooms in the grass. I wasn’t confident about finding anything “blog worthy”, but I imagined there might be pretty leaf or a frog or something. However, the more I walked around, the more I found to photograph.
The first thing that greeted me was the hay bale across the road. I’ve never seen water collect there, so I guess it is proof that we got our share of the rain.
There are ladybugs out and about! I love to watch them, but they are the devil to photograph and I apologize for the lack of clarity. Not only difficult to “track”, but the lens I use has trouble focusing in on something so tiny. Guess I should invest in a macro lens. lol Just kidding Gary!
It has only been an hour and already the world has changed. The sun is out and butterflies are flitting about. More birds are arriving. The flowers are reviving.
The prairie wind will dry off everything and the views will be divine again.
Or perhaps they always were.
