I don't know about you, but my eyes need a break from seeing snow so here is a post that began in early fall of 2016.
One place that I don't visit as often as I should, is our local golf course.This is in part, because I don't golf, but that need not keep me from enjoying beauty like this from the parking lot.
When I refer to the Pembina Valley,this is what I'm talking about.There are no hills around here to create a valley.The land is generally flat, but the Pembina River has carved this valley over many years.It is a beautiful sight at any time of year.
I love birds and will photograph them whenever I can.This Red-tailed Hawk was sitting just on the other side of the ditch and allowed me to stop and get several pictures, before he had enough and flew away.
A small marsh which I often visit, doesn't look like much as a rule, but on this day I thought the golden brown grasses and leaves made a lovely scene.
A Turkey Vulture allowed me to get fairly close before taking off.
And we have lift off.
Several Eagles were in the area.I do believe this and the next three shots are all immature Bald eagles.
I just happen to love these birds and that huge wingspan.
Did I take too many picture? Probably,but that is how it goes.I am limiting how many I post so you are spared the excess of photos.
From birds to grasses,I enjoy them all.
Milkweed seeds are ready to take flight on their silvery wings.
The Sumac is not the most beautiful shrub most of the year, but wait until it puts on it's fall finery and it most certainly is impressive.
Thought for Today:
I think the following is timely advice for the beginning of the new year.
Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it.
Autograph your work with excellence.
