In the eye of the beholder

 It was mid September and I was depressed. I forced myself to go for a walk - over to Leacock - and I was overwhelmed. I cannot recall if there was a reason for my depression - probably not - but I was inspired to continue my walks, naturally with the camera, I don't have  a dog anymore! I have mentally composed a dozen essays that I thought I would share but have not. Too busy, too personal, too ... Anyway. I have submitted a few items in the past 6 weeks but nothing really from my soul, like I intended. This entry is also not a deep thoughtful one but rather an attempt to share the colour that I found today when Vicki and I visited our very dear friend Kathleen. If you go back a few years there is an entry with a deer watching us rake leaves.

Vicki and Kathleen have known each other forever!

I am represented by a rake - ummm ?

Deer, bear, turkeys and turkey vultures, porcupine, share this space. Today socially distant tea.

So colourful.  4°C, no breeze until the afternoon.

A wonderful fulfilling day of raking leaves with friends.

A Dragon?

 Just had a look at last night's attempts:

So even if not ideal, try try again?


Post Script - luck?

Wise Old Birds: Having mistrust of the Human Species is a helpful thing, decency is recognized much more easily.

 I went out for a paddle to see if I could meet with some birds:

Trumpeter Swans -

There was a Mute Swan, too -

And then there was a Heron -

And then to rub my nose in it this flew off too -

What does that make me?

Autumn is "leaving"

 I feel rather "ragged" this evening - procrastination is taking its toll on me.So here is a quick series from the Black River this afternoon.


I think it is a "Sher" Duck?

That "Would" be a duck to most people`
