A Pretty Walk

18 Oct

I wanted to go for a walk in the Back Forty before the shagbark hickory tree lost its beautiful bright yellow color.  I didn’t notice I was also photographing some of the local wildlife.  Do you see it?

How about now.  I didn’t even see the deer next to the fence until I got the photos onto my computer.

By the time out got to the tree, the deer was gone.

Glad I at least got to see it in the photos.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Beautiful Blaze

The pumpkin patch is closed, but I’m still trying to get caught up.

That means you just get a picture of my beautiful Blaze tonight.

Xanthophyll

30 Oct

You’ve got to love the xanthophyll and its contribution to our fall beauty.

Not a lot of xanthophyll in the next two, but I like the red-tailed hawk flying.

Maybe a little evening light to emphasize the xanthophyll.
