Typically, when I go for a hike, my wildlife sightings tend to be limited to birds, squirrels, chipmunks, snakes, and seal (when I‘m hiking a coastal trail that is). It’s quite rare that I see anything else. I still treasure the time I spotted a wild bunny on Campobello (I spotted two more on a bike ride a while ago so that was cool).
Well, on a recent hike at Roque Bluffs State Park, I spotted something I hardly ever seen on the trail.
I was moving right along, my mind in my own little world, and I came around a bend through some trees and saw this gal…
She was just standing there. I expected her to bolt when she saw me. Nope. I told myself “She’ll take off the minute you go for your camera.” But, again, nope. She stayed right there, staring at me, and let me get a few pictures.
I love wildlife sightings.
Until next time…
