Fall Approaches


It takes a bit to get this tiny head out of the fence. I was sure it wasn't a first time, but gave him a hand anyway. He said tha-a-a-anks.


This bluebird house blew it's top. I need to work on making a lot of new ones over the winter. My goal is 100 to spread around my favorite parks.

  1. some beautiful shots there. I'm noticing signs of fall here, minute signs, maybe better described as end of summer signs.

  4. I hope that goat learns that sticking his head through the fence isn't the best idea...lol
    Building those bird houses sounds like a great winter project

  9. We've got small flocks of red-winged blackbirds showing up. They winter here. One time I watched a large grouping fly over my house. It lasted about five minutes.

  12. Great set of images. Nice of you to help the goat out of the fence. It probably saved the fence, too. You get some nice frog shots. We rarely see them, although we do hear them occasionally.

    1. One has to really sneek up on those frogs. Turtles have incredible eyesight and are even harder.
