Throwback Thursday...the Circle of Life
When we lived in Delray Beach, many of our walks were at Green Cay Wetlands. We saw all kinds of wild birds, alligators, a few snakes (ick) and bobcats, turtles, and raccoons.
Besides the exercise and fresh air, being out at Green Cay was like an ongoing nature lesson.
We were privy to mating rituals, nest building, births, and sadly, as in the circle of life, some deaths.
We were out with our friend’s young children and they saw a great blue heron flying off with a baby moorhen. We came across birds with recently caught prey.
We were concerned that they would be upset but while they were interested, they took it in stride.
Maybe it was because they’d seen The Lion King more times than you could count.
