A reminder to stay awake, keep my eyes open. One never knows when Mother Nature will give you a large nudge.

I was sitting in my chair, looking out the window, daydreaming and watching the clouds of dust.

The lion was so fast, if I had blinked, I would have missed her. She leapt beyond the width of two posts,  8 feet apart! We have had a mama deer nearby and I’m afraid her babes may have been her appetizer!

By the time I was at the window, she had disappeared.
As had mama and babes.

Not a sound…

      Yes, I think she did! And she’s not been back , probably a good idea!! It’s deer season here and there’s lots of them this year. Mountain lions prey on them but deer are quite wily too. 🙂

      Yes, she was stunning as long as she’s not stalking me on my walks with Bella, tho she’d take a lion on! I think she’d lose too….

    I had the hardest time getting from the reader to my blog! Geez, stupid WP! Anyway you can see the above reply to your kind comment. I think I’ll just leave it there for right now… Watching hurricane news. My son lives in its path in Florida . 😳


  4. Well, I hope those babies got away safely. Lovely pictures, L’Adelaide. And I might be checking over my shoulder on those walks! 🙂

      Good evening… Ah, a dog named Bella. Mi Bella is 120lbs of stinky, furry love. Her heart is twice as big!

      I see coyotes, fox, bobcats, but never have I seen a lion, only heard them a few times in 40 years of country living. It was shocking and surely a totem of much meaning. Thank you for your kind words. 🙂
