OF LATE SUMMER...

We have many turkey families living in our woods...this one decided to ruffle his feathers for me...this photograph was actually taken through a window. There's many times we'll see 20-30 of them all strutting along the pond, behind the cabin, and even up close to our porch and dock. They're most vocal in the evening talking to each other and flapping up in the trees. You should see all five of my cats at the window watching them. I have witnessed this particular turkey within 3 feet of one of the outdoor cats...they saw each other... neither one seemed to mind the other. Possibly they are familiar with each other from living in the same woods? This is one of my last cone flowers, I have a few more popping up here and there. They are a simple flower, yet so important for the insects in the garden. I'm not sure who enjoys them more...myself or the butterflies and bees! All of my Endless Summer Hydrangeas are putting on a spectacular show of metamorphosis, I enjoy seeing the change of colors on a bloom as it changes on a daily basis. My last photograph is the sunset behind the damn, reflecting on the water...just so serene. And what is that?...Another orb over the pond!? I'm sure it is an insect...but fun to think what it could be! Unlike my first post on the orb...it was not raining in this photo.

I love the wild turkeys. We see them but not often enough.

Did you use a filter on these shots?
I still have a lot to learn about digital cameras. Many years ago I was very good using my SLR camera but digital is tricky.
