beginnings and endings

Close to the vernal pond (which is very low this year), Willow and I found this reminder of death in the midst of new growth.  Taking on the green hue of the emerging plants around them, these bones are very beautiful.  The pond is a favorite place for the deer, their watering hole, and many trails lead to it from the surrounding woods and fields.

  1. Very unusual to find bones like that out on a walk I guess!
    We were out on a family walk and we startled 4 deer who then ran in front of us - DIDN'T have my camera with me!
