The world is full of mysteries, some are more mysterious than others. Animal prints aren't very mysterious or miraculous, and yet, they are a sign that something was there and now it isn't. I was reminded of this, looking at these photos, and wondered why I would even be moved in the moment to take them: They catch my eye, like a magic trick. The animal is gone (in the case of the bear, not far ahead of me) and while I'm looking down, the creature is pulling away from me.
