sunrise


Driving down a country road in the Texas Hill Country at sunrise can be slow-going. This is when the animals own the road, I suppose they are out for the morning hunt. In abundance, there are jackrabbits, deer, roadrunners, armadillo (those that survive the night lounging in the middle of the road), an ocasional cow, and barking dogs running alongside a moving vehicle. I do love early morning time.

up here in Washington, the deer are constantly darting across the road in the wee hours of the morning, as well as the skunks, racoons, porcupines, and of course the occassional elk, moose, cougar, or bear. it saddens me when i see one who didn't make it...

Yes, it is sad when you see one that didn't make it. The good news is, there seems to be plenty of wildlife around. Sounds like you have a great variety up in Washington. Down here, the deer population is out of balance...no natural predators. Hunting season and moving vehicles are the only constant predator to deer. I could go on about this subject (such as overdevelopment of land),but I won't.

Love the way you handle the rabbits.

This is just enchanting. Almost looks like a scene from Watership Down. I'm definitely taken with your style.
