One of the first things on this particular walk that grabbed my attention was this construction on the side of a tree stump.
|Nature @ Work|
I call it "Nature @ Work because it continues to be added to, and remodeled. Kinda reminds me of a stack of pancakes. Well, maybe that's a stretch.
The next picture worthy sighting was this burst of yellow....
As I continued on my venture I came across a tattered tail feather of a wild turkey. Than another. And another. A pattern was developing. What had I stumbled upon? Well, after backing up and surveying the area, I figured out I had come across the scene of an attack by a predator of some kind. At this point I pondered who the hunter was... coyote or fox came to mind. There was a large number of tail and wing feathers scattered about in the area. I didn't see any breast feathers at all. Did this attack result in a successful kill?
The last photo confirmed the attack produced a meal for the hunter.
The educational value learned on this walk is this:
In the wild, life ends so life can continue.
That's the way it is.
