Good Fences

Linking up with good fences, share your fence here http://www.run-a-roundranch.blogspot.com/ While hiking in the state game lands near my home in Oct.,I came across areas that the Pa.forestry have fenced off to allow growth for small trees & certain bushes that provide food for various wildlife. The deer may have been destroying the young seedlings.

Wild Bird Wed.

Starting at the beginning of 2014,I`m sharing the pictures I`ve taken this year of birds for Wild Bird Wed. you can find lots of different birds from around the world here http://paying-ready-attention-gallery.blogspot.com/ 
In Jan. we had the bluejay,hanging on for dear life to a limb in the wind. Then in Feb. we had a warbler, I believe it was the first time for me to photograph.

It has been a difficult journey for me since my husband passed, 7 months today, will ever I stop counting? I will try to keep up with blogging now, it helps center me & also keeps me mindful that I am not the only one going through this depression.

Anniversary

This would have been Rich & my 41st anniversary. It was spitting snow, raining,& cold that day we were married. It was a beautiful day today though.

We would go out to eat at the red lobster in the past 10 years or more. One year I caught this barred owl as we were about to leave to eat .I already blogged it back in 2008,but here the owl is today in remembrance.
He looks like an old man with a mustache. I hate that electrical line in the way of the picture.....love how he swivels his head all around.I could have maybe gotten closer, but didn`t want to scare him.

Pilated Woodpeckers

Two pilateds worked on some oaks today as I stood waiting for the dogs to come inside. Not the greatest pictures because of the lighting, but I was happy to get this close to them. I cropped the shots, then decided to allow for the whole picture to be seen as the foliage & their colors were so pretty.

Michaux State Forest

I drove a couple of minutes up the road this afternoon to hike & photograph some fall colors. The woods have not changed much yet. There were a lot of people out & about riding bikes, I didn`t see any boats on the lake, but there were some tied up on trucks.
wrong time of day to get good pictures of the vista
a lot of the forest is fenced in now
the fences have something to do with keeping out the deer in certain areas
kinda scares me that someone would target practice here
