These are pictures from a pond nearby. These fuzzy guys got distracted on the shore rooting around the leaves. They let us take some beautiful shots before their happy reunion with mom and dad.
For some reason these pictures remind me of my family. Granted, I only have two chicks right now, but the way the little peepers played together warmed my heart.
It also reminded me somehow that life's seasons roll by uninterupted by my own humble comings and goings, and there's something very comforting in that; a sort of soothing, constant, uninterupted rhythme.
