Nature Notes: No two days the same

Almost every day continues to be different from the last one.


Blue skies one day give way to gray the next. Rain gives way to dry. Temperatures are varying a lot too.


I continue to like the changes and it motivates me to walk on the clear days because I know the next day is as likely as not to be rainy.


I like the fluctuations in the temperatures too. Cool nights but some days have warmed up quite a bit.


I love the way the forsythia looks this time of year. I think of that bush primarily for its yellow spring flowers and forget how the leaves change from green to red and almost burgandy before dropping off.


I'm continuing to spot blue herons at the lake. This one was having some luck fishing but I didn't get the snap of a fish in its mouth.


On rainy days I've found myself photographing the view from my windows at home.


Even when the sky is gray and the rain falls, the colorful trees give a brightness to my window views.


It's nice though to have some bright blue skies too because the blue makes a nice backdrop for the colorful leaves.


Before too long all the trees that drop their leaves will be done and I'll be focusing on catching shots of colorful birds perched and easier to photograph without the cover of foliage.

I'm so glad I had a chance to visit you last year . . . because I remember visiting some of the same spots you pot in your pictures. It's cool to see them in the changing seasons!

The weather is a compelling reason to get outside while you still can. I do the same thing.

Always enjoy your photos. That 2nd one looks almost exactly like one I caught from my backyard last year. However, I envy water being so close to you. Gorgeous vistas.

And once again, thanks for showing me the Beauty in autumn that I miss so much.
It's finally getting cooler here too and I manage to get out again,yippieh ;)
Those colours on the trees are simply amazing.
Do the herons stay over winter?
