Turning Colors

As Autumn slips in 
this young house finch is turning colors...

September afternoon

A beautiful, clear cool day...
and I spotted this dragonfly who paused long enough
to capture its delicate beauty with my camera.

bees and sunchokes

End of August

A lovely surprise in the marsh, a juvenile Night Heron
appeared briefly and vanished into the reeds.

In the evening, Josie ran to the window to stalk something.
I thought it was probably an insect the way she cautiously
crept up upon it. From my vantage point I couldn't see what it was
so I quietly went over to investigate.
Sitting on the outside of the window sill was a tiny frog.
It eventually climbed all over the outside of the window
and it was amazing to see how it stuck with suction as it 
traveled and we got a view of the underside.
