Autumn Beauty and Canada Jays!
Today, we will revist Autumn
as it was a few weeks ago, before all the leaves fell off the trees here!
One of the many, many roads I travel down to find photos:
I was so excited to find a Canada Jay.
They are shy birds.
And whenever I try to creep up to take their photo,
they fly away.
The little devils!:
SEE what I MEAN?
I mean, did he have eyes in the BACK of his head, or what??
(Both of them flew!)
I think their backs are pretty too!:
And TELL ME
this Canada Jay
giving me the old heave-ho
I loved this steep hill road
full of color!:
I had my husband stop the car
when I saw this interesting tree.
I do that.
But just LOOK at that gnarly bark
and the curly end of it's trunk...
It begged for a photo, don't you think?:
So now, it is famous.
It can thank me later.
I'm generous like that.
Actually...it is I (or should I say ME?)
that thanked the tree.
And those sassy Canada Jays.
And those autumn leaves and roads.
Their beauty is unmatched.
