The spring migration and breeding season is now over for the birds. The heat of the summer is starting to subside and life around is starting to take a rest.
It’s a bit quiet at the manor, but the fall migration season is just around the corner.
Some leaves are already starting to turn color, even though summer is far from being over.
The bird nests have been abandoned. Some falling out of the trees so carefully placed before. Others still quite secure in their secret nook.
But the photographer’s lament, the mosquitoes are out in full force. Finding the best light later in the day, is also prime mosquito time. With my short foray through the garden for these little discoveries, the mosquitoes enjoyed their buffet and I returned with no less than six bites. Ouch!
To throw in one more goodie for good measure, this is a juvenile Red Tail Hawk I saw yesterday in the neighborhood. What a sight to see.
I’ve often said that the most important thing you can give your children is wings.
Because, you’re not gonna always be able to bring food to the nest.
You’re… sometimes… they’re gonna have to be able to fly by themselves.
