Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends.
It is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada,but in my opinion,we ought to be thankful every day.
The pictures I am sharing go back to early September of this year.
I love to see the geese flocking like this in preparation of their flights south.
Usually,when one of them is spooked,the whole flock takes off.That is an amazing sight of wings in motion.
Back in early September,the Hummingbirds were very active at the feeders.I do prefer pictures of them at flowers,but at the feeder is where they want to be,so I have to settle for those shots.
Of course the seed tray is also busy. I have Red-breasted Nuthatches around all year and I love them.
This immature Ruby-throated Hummingbird seems to be contemplating if he should take a drink or not.
It doesn't take too long,until they find a favourite branch to land on before coming to the feeder.
Of course,where there are two or more Hummers,there is bound to be some fighting going on.These two blend into their surrounding swell.
The day draws to a close.Harvest time often brings beautiful sunsets.I think it could be in part because of the grain dust in the air.
The farmers work late into the evening to get the last of the crop in.
This is a 'for fun' picture. Riding off into the sunset.
It may be Thanksgiving for you or it may come a little later,but I challenge you,
every day find at least one thing for which to give thanks.
Let me start with a few of the things I'm thankful for:
The love of family and friends,
The freedom to worship God openly.
The beauty of nature all around me,————
I could go on and on.
