The seasons march on and change is all around.I guess the only thing that remains constant is that I am always posting pictures that are not very recent.
In early September I spent quite a lot of time driving around and that resulted in seeing animals,birds and sunsets.
Today,I share a set of photos taken around southern Manitoba in early September of 2015.
Unfortunately,by the time the deer come out of the woods,it is usually too late for good light,so the pictures are not perfect,but I share them anyway,because I was thrilled to see the deer.
Here mama and her twin fawns are at the edge of the bush.
Once a birder,always a birder,so when I saw this Red-tailed hawk,I had to get some shots.
He,on the other hand had different ideas.I was pleased to catch this shot right on lift-off.
At another location,this Bald Eagle was perched in a lone tree.Once again,the bird was much too far away,but I still like the photo.
Closer to the road,the cattle was grazing contentedly.
While driving along on the country roads my sister,Becky and I were discussing how we see does and fawns but never get to see a buck.We had no sooner uttered those words,when I saw two beautiful bucks in the ditch on the right hand side of the road.I knew I had no chance of getting out,so I fired a quick shot through the window of the car.
Both of these bucks slowly crossed the road and walked just into the bush on the left hand side of the road.This one stopped and turned to look at me.My camera was not set right and the light was low,but this is what I got.Isn't he pretty.He is still in velvet.
We drove a little farther and waited for the sun to set and were not disappointed with the show.
The color intensified as the sun went lower.
The sun is bidding us goodnight.It had been a great evening.
One thing that I learned from this excursion is,the photos may not all turn out sharp and clear,but the memories they hold are perfect.
Come to think of it,that's much like life.It does not always turn out perfectly but the memories we make along the way are priceless.
