October Morning

The rising October sun slowly seeks out and illuminates the last pockets of morning mist, as my companion and I probe the hillside thickets. Walking in the stillness of early Autumn with no sound but the calling of a distant crow has been an enjoyable experience, but I can ask no greater reward than the excitement of stiff wings beating the thin air and the brief glimpse of a pair of beautiful brown birds as they burst from their hiding place.
