The Sad Part Of Nature
This is the beautiful flower filled meadow that I like telling you about, but the flowers are all gone now. Off in the distance of this picture I found something unexpected. I actually walked over toward those trees looking for deer droppings. I thought it might be fun to show you a few of those tasty little morsels, because they're part of nature too. But what I really found was totally unexpected.
The rest of this post deals with the death of one of nature's most well known creatures, so I decided to give you a warning before you read the rest of this post. In addition there are a few mildly graphic pictures that some of you may not want to see, so I'm not going to put that part on the front page. Instead you can click the link below if you want to see the rest of this post.
I've seen other dead animals on my adventures, but I decided then not to ever show them to you. I'm bringing you this poor snake because it's probably easier to take than some others I've seen. I saw a dead groundhog on the side of the road a month ago. I always get sad when I see something like that.
Just a few weeks ago I saw one of the saddest things that happen around here. Along the side of the road there was a dead deer. It was only a baby. Obviously the family of deer tried to cross the road and that little one didn't make it. A baby. It still hurts just to think about it.
I don't want to talk about this anymore. This story is over!
Now just to bring you back from this depressing post, I want to remind you to never take a guy that is disguised as a mouse too seriously. If any of this made you sad just look away from your computer screen and remember the happy things in your life. What was the happiest moment in you life? You have a chance of topping that today!
