Wednesday in Wyoming -- July 11, 2012

One of the things I find fascinating is animals' camouflage.  Horned larks build their nests in the ground, apparently not caring that predators might trip over them, but you rarely see them, because the colors of the nest and the eggs are so similar to the surrounding grass.  Every time I came near, the chicks would open their beaks, obviously expecting to be fed.  I think they mistook the clicking of the camera shutter for their mother's chirping.

  1. No doubt about it, I wouldn't even see those eggs even if they were right in my path. God is amazing.
