Parting Shot: Nature’s Scavenger Hunt

By Jelly Cocanougher

With each step into the different grasses that line the shelf of trees comes a thrill of the hunt. Searching and scavenging for stuff that nature has delicately left behind. Sheds, feathers, bones or shells. Things that the wild beasts in the thick woods leave as legends from being some of the apex predators. Marks on trees from bucks scratching their massive swords that extend from their skulls as they itch for the antlers to fall off, as lucky animals, humans included, try to find them before the other. These are nature’s decorations within the earth’s playground.
