Live Another Day … or Not

20160705B3

A few days ago, I discovered a spider hiding out in the carrot flowers, waiting to nab passing bees. Today, I found it feasting on a bee. I suppose, if you are a bee, dying on a bed of carrot flowers is as good a place to die as possible.

Living in nature’s haven, there are daily reminders that death is but a step away. This afternoon I saw a small squirrel eat a baby bird it had caught. It looked like a baby robin the squirrel had snatched out of a nest.

Living in the country, has taught me how precious life is. No matter how small or how big you are, there is something lurking to eat you.
