We Can Be Taught

How can you be taught?

Is it the norm, or can you learn from other ways?

Could it be the squirrel that saves away all year for the lean times?

Or the busy bee working all day for the greater good of the hive,

maybe the early bird, or even the cat that sits in the window all day basking in the Sun.

The wolves that work as a team to pace and run down aΒ caribou over days of work.

The lions that tactically approach and close in on an animal ten times their size

The copperhead snake that lays in wait under leaves for prey to wander by,

or the rattlesnake that distracts attention away from it’s deadly fangs.

I saw my husky dig shallow pits in the best clover just to lay down in it in the dead of summer heat to cool off.

A crafty mouse outwit a trap time and time again.

There are many things and ways to learn them, not just from books, but from everywhere.

So be aware, observe and maybe you just might learn something from somewhere you just didn’t expect.

We can be taught!

  6. A great wider perspective on animal behaviour. I’m also interested if you have an opinion on the status of the red wolf of ‘North Cackalacky’? πŸ™‚

  7. Of course, very crafty I must say. I’m glad you liked this post, I tried to do something a little different with the prompt. And thank you for taking the time to check it out….. πŸ™‚
