Accidental Hat by Carolyn Schmitz
A baby javelina rests in the shade of a blooming cactus amid a tangle of wildflowers — blackfoot daisies, desert trumpets, chinchweed, Mojave aster, globemallow, and angel trumpets.
He is spied by a raven making his rounds of social calls. “How odd!” thinks the bird. “He’s wearing a cactus pad for a hat.”
It isn’t long before the gossipy raven is broadcasting what he’d just seen to everyone in the territory.
