This afternoon I followed an urge to walk at Maudslay State Park. I had no flower expectations although I suspected I would find color popping in the woods.

It was peaceful. Although there were other people walking and mountain biking, I found solitude in the woods.

As I turned a corner on the trail I heard a crashing noise. I stood still, quiet, looking around. As I turned my head to the left I saw a deer looking back at me. We both stood silently for a few minutes, watching each other.

Later, my eyes caught some bright flowers, azalea in wonderful shades of orange. Oh look! A butterfly, enjoying the flowers, stayed on its floral perch and posed for me.
