Our World Tuesday: Sunday Walk

After a rainy start to the weekend, we had a beautiful day on Sunday to walk.

I am glad that I'm starting to recover from too long hikes when I was on vacation.
I would hate to miss autumn walks at home, and thankfully am finally getting the energy to walk around the lake near my house.
I had to laugh when I noticed the party going on at the picnic table (shown below) in a flooded area around the lake.
The ducks were having a great time partying on the table although I didn't see any picnic food.
There was a great blue heron perched on the fish feeding station.
He was scared off by a human fisherman on the bank.
The heron ended up fishing on the other side of the lake and is in the shot below but too distant to see him, except as a spec on the left hand side.
I zoomed in though to get a better shot of the heron's new fishing spot.
The cormorants have returned to their favorite perch where I tend to spot them in the fall.
I like the way the evergreens are mixed in with the trees that will lose their leaves in the winter.
We still haven't reached peak color in my neck of the woods as the oaks and a few other trees have just started to change leaf color.

Sometimes I am confused, the autumn shots are better or the spring ones. Such lovely captures!
