    Exquisite. The colorations, the posture of the prairie dog echoing the lines of the buttes and bluffs, the way the time of day was inferred and how the shadows, both mineral and biological, paralleled each other. I was completely there. Thanks.

    autumn twilight
    twinkles the star
    above the crooked aged bough
