These pix were taken on back-to-back days, so you may notice some lighting differences.
The first day brought early changes in leaves.
And yes, they are falling.
Nonetheless, it's pretty ravishing at times!
Harry was out. First he was fishing.
Then he went to sit atop the nesting house in the middle of the big pond.
I also noticed this bird and wasn't sure what it was.
When Kate and I went out walking the second day, the bird was back in the same spot he was before. Here are a couple other pix. We're thinking bittern or green heron.
But there was more action that water birds! Harry was back and so were some other friends!
This beautiful deer was sampling the large pond.
Pretty soon she and her young one made the trek across.
The baby is getting pretty big -- not as big as mom, but definitely growing up!
We know they went over to a different pond -- we actually caught a glimpse of three deer but it was hard to get a photo through the foliage.
But what a wonderful sighting on a beautiful afternoon! More autumn to come. It's a time of year I love -- but what's after? Not so much!
