[honey bee basking in the morning sunlight]

i wake with the dawn.. as soon as the sky starts to lighten, my eyes pop open.. and before i even make my coffee, i pull on my boots and head outside.. i trek down the deer trails and meander thru the six acres woods.. the landscape appears the same, but my eyes are alert for any movement or misplaced colour.. sometimes, i sneak up on a deer and the sound of a hoof pounding the ground warns me i'm too close.. not today tho, it was so still and silent out in the woods.. not even a bird about.. i take photos of leaves and tree trunks and breathe in the fresh cool air.. it centers me, brings me back to a balance of calm and gratitude..

the sun it just starting to peek over the Meyer hill as i make my way back to the house.. and this little honey bee clinging to my bedroom window screen catches my eye.. warming himself in the first rays of sunlight..
