I just got back from northern Indiana and, disappointingly, the leaves were just beginning to change on most of the trees. It’s a very late fall. It was also cloudy and raining most of the time I was there…
It was even foggy one morning, something rarely seen in Phoenix.
Now that’s what I wanted to see more of, above.
Behind those marshy grasses, above, is a little pond where ducks hang out. This girl is the only one who came out to greet me this year wearing her leaf necklace.
She’s a Mallard hybrid which I confirmed with one of my knowledgeable birding buddies.
I was hoping to see some Cardinals, Robins, Blue Jays, something…I heard birds but never saw any close up.
This guy did not seem to want his photo taken as right after this shot, above, he started chasing me. So I left.
Just not as dramatic as I had hoped for… 😦
