early Thanksgiving visitor

We had an early Thanksgiving visitor, this doe was slowly walking through the yard, eating some of the bird seed on the ground.  She casually walked her way across the yard and went to the neighbors.  My contribution to Good Fences #36 (there are 4 different fences in this photo, a quad-fer).  In case you are having trouble locating the 4 fences …

one surrounds the pool, there’s another fence behind the pool fence, a third fence on the very right side of the photo, and a fourth fence in the upper right corner of the photo.  The first and fourth look very similar, but they are not attached.

A few hours later, we had this visitor!

Bella loves to sit in the sun by the front door, so much so, that she will over heat and start panting.  I got down low and took a nice portrait of her.

one foggy morning

Last week brought a couple of foggy mornings, so I stopped at the entrance to Lower Nike park (named for the missiles, not the shoes).

I experimented with HDR and Monochrome, but the ‘traditional’ won out.  My contribution to Good Fences #35

tall fences

While riding down the same road at this beauty, I came across this very large soybean field surrounded by this impossibly tall fence (it was at least 8 feet tall). I assume it’s to keep the deer out.

A contribution to Good Fences #34.

yes, indeed

Yes, indeed, that is snow falling, the first of the season. It might cover the grass, if so, I’ll post something tomorrow.

I hope it doesn’t have plans on sticking around like last year …
