I began my day taking notice of something small.
As I cleaned the snow from the donkey’s hay feeder, I saw the lacey ice clinging to the top rail. Too small to photograph with the lens on my iPhone, I went back to the house and got my macro lens.
Seeing small things continued on my walk in the woods and even once I was back home. All of these photos were taken with my macro lens. Everything I photographed was about a quarter of an inch or smaller.
Yesterday I noticed an unusual amount of rabbit footprints in the woods, as if they all came out at the same time. There were lots of circles in the snow, making it look as if they were playing. I don’t know what brought them out. Maybe they were looking for food, or maybe it had to do with spring and mating.
Today the footprints were covered over by fresh snow but I found spots of blood and tufts of rabbit hair in more than one place.
