Spring Has Sprung, Summer’s Coming On


It’s that time of year in Southern California. Trees that were mostly bare during the winter months are now full of leaves and life.

The coyotes are busy teaching their new cubs how to hunt for their dinner. People are keeping a sharp and protective eye on their small dogs and cats, and even their smaller children, as the evening grows near and the nightly hunt begins.

The crows and other feathered predators are busy raiding the nests of smaller birds looking for tender chicks.

The bunnies and rodents, whose main purpose is to provide food for carnivores, are scurrying through the undergrowth in a bid to survive long enough to produce a new generation.

It’s the circle of life and it’s happening all around us.
