Late Summer Walking

The dogs love walking in the late summer and fall for one reason in particular: fool hens!  Nothing is more fun than startling a big noisy bird out of the grass.  And then another!  And another!  After I recovered from a near heart attack, I got this snap of the action.   You can see three dogs and a hen, all in a whirl.S0483403When we arrived there was a large prey bird in the trees, staring down at the grass.  It probably had an eye on a fool hen smorgasbord.  We ruined a nice opportunity, but maybe we saved a life.

The rest of the walk was less eventful.  Just a nice sunset and a bit of a scramble through ruts and fallen trees on an old lover’s lane.
