But as Feintsje quickly found out, nature can sometimes be horrifying!
At my house, we sometimes watch a woodchuck in our neighbor's yard while we are eating lunch. In this glass case are taxidermied animals. One of them is a woodchuck. They have very large teeth. It was all rather a shock to this boy.
It served as a reminder to me not to lose anyone on this trip.
Jonge pointed it out to me. I assured him that it was not a bird. He told me it certainly was a bird, a woodpecker.
So I used my handy-dandy zoom lens, and then apologized to Jonge for not believing him.
Because the squirrels who live here are certainly not lacking for food.
Hmm. Much to ponder here.
Then I go back into the archives of this blog to notice just how much they've grown over the years.
Here Kado and Feintsje are trying to find the location in the woods where we had our lunch.
There is so much to see here.
And again I must wonder, where are all the people!?
