But how can it be Oct. 31st/Halloween already?
At least it gives me a reason to use my favorite colors today. 🙂
Today’s header photo is Spooky/Scary birds, ton’s of ’em in fact. The sun was setting and the lake was already in shadow. The whole flock flew over us and landed in the sunlit tree to catch the last of its rays for the day. The tree looked orange in the fading light. Beautiful, and quite a sight to see. They’re cormorants I believe.
How many did you count in the header photo?
Here’s another Spooky/Scary bird, or at least he thought so. 🙂
