The howling could be coyote or wolf
The screaming is Tasmanian devil or banshee
Wait, is there such a thing?
I meant bobcat
It is evening now
Time for the nocturnal creatures to come out in full force
The puma, lynx and fox hunt down the prey that does not hide well
There are so many creatures, all tasty.
Where to begin?
Who to eat first?
Could have been a bunny or a mouse.
The moon shows shadows on the forest floor
a Luna moth glides by
the mosquitoes begin their feeding frenzy
Sucking the blood of mammals like tiny vampires
Bullfrog begins croaking a bit more loudly
Firefly flits around confidently
The evening has begun for the night creatures
