Another Lovely Fall Day


Yesterday’s weather was so nice , sunny, warm with cool breezes !  After Miggs and I went for our walk  I went on the hunt for things to photograph once again .  It’s amazing how much there is to photograph right in your own back yard . This time of year so much is changing .


We have a lot of Blue jays here just indulging on all the seed from the feeders I have out !


I decided to look up high into our huge 150 + year old tree to see what might be up there and found this Squirrels nest tucked tight in the crick of the large branches !


                        Then I noticed this little fellow peeking at me through the leaves and branches !


I walked around the tree looking up and this is what else I saw ! Huge fungi growing out of the side of the tree waaayyy up high !


Then I saw more just on the opposite side of the first one ! I have always found fungi interesting and am amazed by how and where it grows  and all the different shapes and colours it takes !


Sunshine beaming down through the leaves and branches ! This big old tree is slowly changing !


One of the Nuthatch we have here had just finished hiding his seed in the tree for later ! I like to try to capture the birds in a more naturel surrounding other then always at the feeders but sometimes that’s hard to do as they hide in the trees pretty well when they have food !


I was amazed to see this little butterfly supping up what nectar is left in the flowers . I wonder if he is here on a pit stop from way up north whilst on his long  journey to warmer climates ! Be safe on your journey little butterfly and hope to see you next spring and summer !

                                       Until next time ,  hope you all have a great day !
