slow days of autumn

I saw these amazing reflections on Sucker Lake this week. The trees of  many colors stand guard over the lake where loon eggs were hatched, swans stayed on the secluded part of the lake, pelicans and cormorants clustered on a sand bar, herons and egrets fished the banks. We've had bright autumn days with plenty of time to remember summer.
Visit Skywatch Friday for more of the season.

Lovely, lovely. I'm glad you mentioned all the birds, too. I'll never forget the wonderful call of the loon.

Mirror images double the magic on a cool autumn day. Sounds like the area you visited is bursting with wildlife amid the lovely reflections.

Oh, that lake is much too beautiful to be called "sucker"!


STARFALL

In the sky the stars shine bright
Not by day, but through the night.
Should the stars begin to fall,
There would be no sky at all!
