A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

Nature has a way of inspiring us in the most unexpected ways.

The sky has an eerie glow. The cornstalks are rustling in the wind. There is a hint of mystery in the air. What lurks behind the bale of hay? Only the shadow knows.

This picture may not be worth a thousand words, but it could be worth five hundred words in a picture book. Are you inspired?
