Before the rain....

I figured it would be a good idea to get out for a nature walk and breath in all that fresh spring air.
I couldn't resist creating a little art out of an old dried Queen Anne's Lace....and the willow tree...what a beauty! But the most exciting part was when I almost got run over by a Red-tailed Hawk that was enjoying rabbit brunch.... Sorry fellow, if I'd known you were there I would have gone the other way!!!
