Day 21 - Gray day

Day 21 - Gray day

A very gray day again in the Chicago area, so while out for a walk I'm forced to search for beauty. I'm not sure this is beauty, but it is an amazing part of nature. This is a squirrel nest. During the majority of the year, it is hidden by the leaves in the tree, but in the winter, it is exposed for all to see. It strikes me that we are the opposite, as people, in the winter we are bundled up and hardly recognizable to neighbors who drive by. I look forward to the warm days of spring when we can shed our winter layers.
