Morning snow swirling
bitter cold winds are howling
Not wolf’s melodyI’m catching up on some haiku that was done several years ago and never posted.

White throat makes it a Mrytle
a springtime beautyThere are two subspecies of Yellow-rumps – which are often referred to as “butter butts’.
The Mrytle has a white throat…much less common in my area, but definitely not a rarity.
The Audubon’s has a yellow throat…these are the most common in my area. Today, we saw over 60.

Told to stay in place
Waiting for mother’s return
Three dutiful cubsWe ran across these three lion cubs in Samburu on one of my safaris. The cubs had apparently been told to stay where they were until their mother returned.. When we drove back out in the afternoon we came across the mother headed back to her cubs. She made low lion sounds and the cubs came running…..
