In the spring, when I walked down my blacktop road, I rescued worms. These wiggly guys had left the ditch and headed across the road probably to their death. Either they would have been run over or dried out from being out in the sun.
Now the season has changed and I rarely find worms during my walk. These days I find another critter trying to cross the road.
The caterpillar might not dry up while crossing the road like a worm, but it sure can get run over.
I relocated this one back in nearby greenery.
I may not be able to save a lot of worms or caterpillars, but I think the ones I do are grateful. At least I hope they are.
On my drive home the other day, I spotted this bald eagle. Since I was on a quiet country road, I stopped to take this photo. I zoomed in as best I could, snapping a quick picture before I spooked it and it flew away.
I didn’t have to go anywhere for the next photo.
A couple of my hens came looking for me.
I think they learned how to beg at the window from the cats who often lurk by the same window when it’s close to feeding time.
