Just beyond the edge of our property is a trail into the woods. I am not sure exactly why it is there but it is a great place to take a walk and enjoy the scenery of the woods.
Last weekend I ventured down the path to see if I could spot a bird or two.
On this particular day I wasn't able to capture any birds, but did enjoy the colors of the woods.
With all the heat of this past summer, and some of the leaves beginning to dry up before Summer came to an end, I was afraid that the trees would not be very colorful. But I believe they are more beautiful than last year.
Even the weeds along the pond's edge are pretty.
I stopped to take a few photos of the trees along highway on my way home a few days ago.
The school near our house has a beautiful grouping of brightly colored trees.
I wanted to capture them before the leaves are all gone.
The leaves are falling at a fast rate now and soon the trees will be bare.
Friday afternoon when I took the dog out I noticed this spider on the side of the house.
I don't know what kind of spider it was, but it was sure a creepy looking one.
As I began snapping photos of it I noticed the shadow on the bricks of the house. Perfect for Shadow Shot Sunday 2.
This morning standing at my kitchen window I saw this Bluebird sitting on the wires.
My little pal, Chip, was enjoying a few bird seeds on the patio wall.
Chip visits often looking for seeds. I have started leaving him some on the patio wall.
I watched as he gather a mouth full of seeds and scurried off.
I knew he would return in a few minutes, so I opened the laundry room door, which is the closest view of the patio wall, and waited for him to return.When he did, I managed to capture this shot. I love his full checks, so cute!
