Nature Notes: Seasons Change


November is when autumn fades into winter here - or slams into it broadside, as it did this year. These were taken from an upstairs window just nine days apart.


I've put the bird feeder back up, and it has a few regular visitors again. Not nearly the numbers as before, but maybe as the winter wears on. We do have an unusual number of crows, though.

I've been stalking crows for years, hoping to catch a flock in the snow, but they are the most skittish of all the birds I have. They spot me immediately and they do not stick around to see what I'm going to do with that strange little black box.


Storm Crows


Kind of a short entry this time, what with holiday to-do lists and all. But I do hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving week, filled with family and friends, good food and warmth!

Thanks - it seems all of you got blindsided by Old Man Winter too this time around!

Aprille - hello, and welcome! I haven't quite got the hang of shooting out of windows either. Exposure is very tricky. I just focus on the view and hope for the best.

Happy Thanksgiving to you! I love the two photos of the same scene. The Autumn shot is my favorite. The shot of the crow is cool. Have a happy day!
