Sunflowers reaching for the sky on a small Minnesota farm.
Go out, go out I beg of you
And taste the beauty of the wild.
Behold the miracle of the earth
With all the wonder of a child.
~Edna Jaques, (1891-1978) Canadian lecturer, author and poet

And, I considered that these very same legs are their best defense against the dangers of their environment. For as I approached the deer, they turned to run from me with tremendous grace and speed. Amazing.
