On November 7 Jake and I went for a walk with friends of ours.
The trail we took is part of the Trans-Canada Trail system,located near Morden.
I am showing you a few pictures from this walk,which was most enjoyable.
The birds were almost none existent,so we had to focus on other things.
We came upon this patch of Milkweed,spreading it's seeds.
This picture shows the seeds packed into the pod,just waiting to be released.
I know these plants are not well liked by all,but they are food for the Monarch Butterfly.
Trying to be creative.
The back-lit pod and seeds make a good shot.
This was the scene,as each one of us was trying to get that perfect shot.
Thanks Walter,Sally and Jake for this picture.
All three were too busy taking pictures,to notice me taking their picture.
I hope that the rainbow colors show up in this picture.
I only noticed that effect once I had the pictures on the computer.
One seed just barely hanging on.
The path took us down to a small creek.
I liked the way the water swirled among the stones.
Most of the leaves were already on the ground,but these ,back-lit ones peeked around the trunk of a tree.
A tree that has fallen,perhaps due to age.
The remaining stump makes a good photo subject.
Through a happy springtime,
And a summer filled with love,
May we walk into the autumn,
With our thoughts on God above.
