    Smile Wild babies being moved by mother

    We have lots of squirrels in our back yard. The other day one of the mothers decided to move her babies, these are some of the photos I took of the event.Name:  2017-03-20_5Y1A8309 [s] Fox Squirrels.jpg

    You captured mom moving her babies perfectly!
    Reminds me of the day a neighbor was frantically pounding on my door and
    explaining that a bigger squirrel had been "bullying" a smaller squirrel now trying
    to take it up a tree and she thought it was dead.
    When I went out to look, what you captured was exactly what was taking place.
    My neighbor was in awe and obviously relieved...

    The Peace of Wild Things
    BY WENDELL BERRY
    When despair for the world grows in me
    and I wake in the night at the least sound
    in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
    I go and lie down where the wood drake
    rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
    I come into the peace of wild things
    who do not tax their lives with forethought
    of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
    And I feel above me the day-blind stars
    waiting with their light. For a time
    I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
