In the Wild!

The Florida Brown Pelican I do not believe we are being “imprisoned”; but I do understand and can relate to our desire to be free again. For me it is not just the freedom to leave my house and hit the road; but I long to be free of this unseen virus, which is so…

A Squirrel Playing in the Snow He must have found something to eat; I do not know for sure, but he did not seem to mind the snow. Obviously, I was quite entertained, watching him at play or perhaps it was at work.
