Sunday Stroll: A Walk At The Park

Vintage cruisers
Roar through the park
While I
Celebrated elegance
In the translucence of these leaves.
With the sun shining down through them.

The biggest of the day
I will see you later.

Visit Marcie the originator of Sunday Strolls. Her Quiet Country House in Michigan is always a treat to visit.

Forest Fun

The forest lights up
Like a stained glass window
As sun makes the colors bright.

With rut in progress many youngsters are chased away by a buck who wants all of their mother's attention. That ruffled fur could be from an antler prod to make a point. Sometimes they reunite, other times they are on their own.

As I watched this yearling eating acorns I thought back as a kid when I took a bite to see if they were any good.  They are very bitter, but turkey and deer gobble them down.

Mmmmmm, acorns taste good to me also
Black-capped Chickadee
A little red, white and blue, a Cardinal and a Bluejay

Mourning  Doves will mate for life, sometimes 7-10 years.

End Of The Day

The sun sets slowly
Coloring the land
In all of it's glory
At the end of the day.

Sunday Stroll: A Few Treasures Found

Water like glass reflects the day, sunny yet chilly as the season ends.

Harvested fields open a new area to walk and explore. Some go for a few miles before they end.
This playground isn't just for the "kids" as adults are entertained with the boards and play set the owner has set up for them. These goats really enjoy climbing.
A massive Burr Oak bares it's branches after dropping it's leaves showing the huge structure underneath. It towers over surrounding trees and bushes.

Color remains upon the hillsides.

A huge Great Horned Owl waits down in a draw for a nice dinner.
