Well, as summer is near it's end, and fall is approaching faster than I care to think, thought I would share with you some current (and some older) photos.
I am linking in this post with my friend, Donna Donabella, who is hosting Seasonal Celebrations-Autumn's Blessings blog post. Donna writes a beautiful blog called Garden's Eye View. Her photos are excellent and she is very knowledgeable on gardening and native plants. Click on the link to check out her blog.
|Signs that fall is approaching in Northern New York. The geese are practicing their V-formations,|
the fields are golden, the corn needs to be harvested., and a touch of red in the leaves of trees.
Cedar Waxwings. Filling up on berries for their trip south.
This photo was taken a few years ago one
morning when a turkey vulture was drying his wings after a rain.
|This is a large group of turkey vultures catching the thermals on the eastern end of Lake Ontario. |
I'm guessing they are practicing for their flight south for the winter.
|I wouldn't be surprised if there were some dead fish washed up on this shoreline.|
My husband, Ted, was filling up the suet feeders with a purchased suet block and this little woodpecker did not fly away and was taking the leftover suet out of the container.

What's better than one turtle on a log?
Came back later and saw three turtles on the same log.
|Great Blue Heron|
|Orange Sulphers otherwise known as Alfalfa Butterflies drinking in water and minerals from seaweed.|
Here are a couple photos of seagulls. I was practicing trying to get birds in flight. Wow! Is that ever a challenge. After quite a few photos and a little photo cropping, I got two photos that were worth sharing with you.
"[T]hat old September feeling... of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air.... Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes and failures had been wiped clean by summer."
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy the last few days of summer.
