David during the lunch break, watching...what was it? A Raven?


Ken instructing us in the proper way to pose for a picture. You need to pose like a model with attitude.


We didn't take that advice. Many thanks to Ken for taking this photo!


I think this is showy jacob's ladder, but please correct me if I'm wrong.


A Red-tailed Hawk.


David regarding a friendly grasshopper.
