A Hot Day for the Dinosaur - Bento

It was a hot day for the dinosaur. She goes to the river to drink and makes ripples in the pond with the pebbles at the bottom, so cool and peaceful on this summer day... or .... The sun shone down hot on the dinosaur, she looks for a drink, but the plains are ablaze in front of her, she can not see for the billows of smoke blocking her way to the river.

Either way you look at it, it is a hot day for the dinosaur.
The Dinosaur is an almond butter and jelly sandwich on wheat bread.
The plains are green beans.
The sky is a graham cracker with a cheddar cheese sun.
The smoke/pond is made from pear slices.
The pebbles/fire are chunks of cantaloupe.

Which way do you see it? Leave a comment to let me know.
Special thanks to Friend of Food V for giving me a fun dinosaur shaped sandwich cutter which inspired me to make this bento.
