The rainy, cloudy moods of autumn are moving in and our trees are beginning to drop their color, bit by bit. Still bright in patches, there are more bare branches with every day. Before it all disappeared, it was time for a walk to the ditch.
But on this day, the sun was high, the sky blue and it was a perfect way to say "goodbye."
The ducks were plentiful, of course.
Going around any bend one would see a splash of color.
And it was no different when looking up! Or out!
Of course I was hoping for a guest appearance by our resident Harry the Heron and I wasn't disappointed.
I suspect his mental calendar is a bit topsy turvy with this extra-warm autumn!
He was prancing around like he owned the place. And I guess he does!
The lighting was odd -- when I stood in one spot, the water was brown and you could see every lily pad.
But when you shot from a different direction, into the light, the backlighting offered a shimmery blue and silver.
I may see him again this fall, but chances are likely he'll be taking off soon for a warmer climate.
If you see Harry down in your neck of the woods, say hello for me!
