We have a nature preserve bounded by a levee that goes around our city. I get to watch the "silent assassins" when I walk. This is delightful! Congratulations!

I liked the haiku, Jan... Now as for that picture I didn't see the 'hair-on!' (Groan)... I'd laugh, but it hurts all over these days. ~ Back to my man-cave
