The Shapleigh back yard woods road
as seen in early spring browns.

Above I hear a tap...tap...tapping.
At the center I see movement.

A woodpecker getting a meal.

Below me, fresh brown bear tracks.

Below me, old moose scat.

Before me, in the pond, swimming movement in the middle.

Hello, muskrat.

Curious in cool icy water?

Got some grasses in your mouth?
Taking them somewhere?

Going under? Bye.
