Summer has passed and fall is slowly fading into winter.
Many birds have left this area for warmer homes down south,but some still remain to bring us pleasure.
I love the simple little Dark-eyed Junco.They may not have brilliant color or even a memorable song,but they bring joy to the fall and winter landscape.
As our summer birds travel south,so do the Snowy Owls.The only difference is that they spend their summers up north and then move into our area for winter.
This is the first Snowy Owl of the season for me. It was a rather windy day,as is evidenced by the out of place feathers.
Toward the middle to end of October the White-tailed Deer become more active.
These were two fawns that had been grazing with Mom,but felt the need to move on when I stopped to get their picture.
This doe paused long enough for me to get several shots.She had no reason to be afraid,as I was shooting with a camera only.Hunting season is upon us and that means the deer become more cautious,and rightly so.
I noticed this deer way out in the field and liked the way that the sun was highlighting it's back.A perfect picture this is not,but it is one I happen to like.
The person who has stopped being thankful has fallen asleep in life.
