“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.” – Confucius
When I was heading to work the other morning, I snapped this photo of the Maple River. On my social media page, I received a lot of opinions on how the photo was creepy. Personally, I thought the scene beautiful. I guess one could say the image is hauntingly beautiful.
I was on my way home when I was fortunate to see this herd of deer. I think, there are 21 deer. I only took a few photos of them. I did not want to spook the deer while they were eating. We’ve been having very frigid temperatures the last few days. I am sure the deer were happy to find food.
Michigan has been experiencing a cold snap the last few days. But the sunset tonight was absolutely beautiful. Of course, I only snapped a few photos. I just was not dressed warm enough to stand out there.
Ok…I am not bird a expert. I am just guessing. But, when the Egrets and other water birds begin to gather, I know summer is coming to an end. Hard to believe right now, the temperatures are still in the 90-degree range with high humidity. Yet, from my photo adventures, I can tell you colder weather is just around the corner.
I snapped this photo over by the dikes, yes, that is a local term. I know there is a formal name for the protected wetland area. I just cannot remember. (I keep telling myself to photograph the sign, but I get distracted by the wildlife).
