In Spring in my area, the flora and fauna emerge with equal ferocity.
Going for walks has become difficult because of bear sightings everywhere. Living in the woods as I do, I have taken to fewer wooded walks and more cautious
Nevertheless, the diversity of nature available to me even from my porch or a walk onto the lawn outside our house is staggering.
The doe above and her relatives kept popping up wherever I looked -first in the long, young ferns along our road, then again and again the garden down by our pond.
A few days later, I found this gorgeous Luna Moth lingering on the log siding outside our porch door. It rested there for a number of hours, then disappeared during the night. Very rare, and exquisitely beautiful.
