Yesterday I shared the outdoors with two-legged, four-legged and no-legged fellow creatures. This 3 foot black snake was catching some rays on a tall stump in the river. Turtles stretched their necks to soak up some Vitamin D before the rains and the cold weather. A curious bald eagle wondered what beast she was looking at, one that wasn't up in a tree and was too big to eat. Herons hid in the shadows hunting. Swans glanced over their folded wings, calm and serene but watchful.
