I can't help it -I'm the daughter of a farmer and a huge animal lover. Even though my kids are 13, 11 and 8 I still mentally point out every living thing I see. Everywhere.
Friends who ride or run with me quickly discover this trait as I'm pointing out every robin and bunny we see. Mentally I tally animals as I go along my routes and today was a pretty good day.
2 - Bunnies
6 - geese
1 - snapping turtle
1 - turkey
1 - duck
My favorite by far was the turkey and the duck. When I passed them they were sitting next to each other and chattering. The turkey vamoosed when I turned around to take their photo but they were so cute I couldn't resist.
Oh wait, that's not a praying mantis - that's me! Ha
So grateful for the chance to experience the sunrise and God's beautiful creation this morning.
Do you have any rides or runs planned this weekend?
