Ahhh….I love three day weekends! There is a day for the “must-dos”, one for the “need-to-dos”, and one more for the “want-to-dos”! Today was my want-to-do day, so I headed north to see if I could see any migrating waterfowl. These blue-winged teals were really far away, so the sharpness of the photo is not the best, but I thought it was so beautiful with the fall back-drop that I had to share it.
As I was driving along the Mississippi River I spotted this gathering of cormorants. Something about the spacing of the birds along this log really fascinated me. It is almost as if they have a line for their own personal space. My brothers, sister, and I did the same thing in the backseat of the car when we were kids:)
The egrets and herons were out and about today. There is something about these beautiful birds that really draws me in. I always have to stop and take a few photos!
This three-day weekend had perfect weather – sunny and in the 70s and 80s. What more could you ask for in October when you live in the mid-west!
