A nice day to watch the river go by, and listen to a prairie breeze move the trees.
One of the smallest of the aster blooms is about the diameter of a pencil.
A lone Monarch
Boy, this always feels so good to roll in the sand.
A small flock of Northern Flickers followed some Bluebirds around the pond.
This Eastern Bluebird was starting to molt. I wasn't sure if they were flying to warmer weather or sticking around a bit longer. All the others have flown away quite a long time ago.
More eagles are showing up. The will trade places with the Turkey Vultures soon.
Leaves are showing a slight change in color, where some softwoods have just shed their leaves without turning color.
Asters range in color from a deep purple to white.
My favorite shot from this last month
