Although the back paths, followed mostly by animals, yielded no animals, I did come across very shallow areas that were water when it was warmer. They were beautiful, but crunchy. I’m sure to any animals in the area it was like a thunder clap.

Prior to the end of this walk I’d only seen five white tails bobbing up and down as the deer attached to them, unseen by me, bounded into the woods at a distance. A short while later, I looked up and saw this hawk, one of the advantages about no leaves on the tree being that you can see birds much better. Having only my phone, I did my best in the grey morning to get a photo.

After taking the above photo, the hawk took off. I shot as fast as possible with my phone, unable to really see what I was getting. The hawk flew about a yard from my head before taking off into the farther woods and out of sight. When I got home and looked at my photos, I realized I’d gotten lucky, especially with a phone camera. I did just a bit of editing to bring the hawk out a bit more and came up with this.

Although I know this isn’t really pointillism, all the little drops of water on the hairy bits of the plant remind me of it.

We’ve often seen Wyoming brown and I’ve seen it partly green but it, like so many other places in the country, had much rain this spring. That meant that conditions were ripe for wildflowers.  I loved these shooting stars and I think you can see how wet it was!
