Anything outdoors!  Tornadoes, eagles, blizzards, or auroras.  If it is in the sky, running through the woods or swimming in the water, I'm there!

Shots from the weekend...last of the fall colors?

Photobucket

Colors are quickly going down hill around home. There are still pockets of bright vibrant color but the transition over to brown and down is well under way. A few eagles are starting to show up but none really wanted to cooperate and I made a bad positioning decision on one area I know the eagles hunt for muskrats. Yup, right on cue a pair started working the marshy end of the lake...too bad I opted for better lighting and put myself out of the game by a couple of hundred yards. Next time...

Waterfowl numbers look like they are doing well early in the migration.

But I am concerned what they will find once they reach the polluted gulf coast marshes.

Fighting swans.

This squabble went on for quite a few minutes.

Finally one gave up and high tailed it to the other end of the pond.

Looks like it is going to be a beautiful week coming up weather-wise. Makes me nervous as to when the other shoe will drop!
