Owls are in the neighborhood, calling to each other, a distinct voice in the woodland. Tonight a pair hunt for frogs by the pond as I watch their heads swivel, eyes set for any movement. Mayflies hop all day over the water but where are the birds?
There have been other predator, a hawk, kingfisher and great blue heron. We stopped putting fish in. The frogs come on their own. One year there were so many tadpoles! Where are they now? Where are the frogs, chipmunk, the squirrel?
beauty of nature
springs forth at the edge of pond
predator with prey
