It’s another ridiculous amount and it is far from over. Sulphur River, the creeks, every ditch and pool are running around and over and out of their banks again.
I do not like this time of year anyway and when it is rainy and dreary and cold to boot… I am miserable.
I’ll live though.
I think a little fall color taken yesterday with my phone and apps and uploaded to Instagram will cheer me up… maybe it will you too if you are down and out like me.

This pool is on the side of the highway north of Clarksville. I’ve vowed for a while to stop and take pictures. We were out that way this morning for a friend’s funeral service and I knew when I passed by on the way, I would stop on the return trip.
With my iPhone, ProHDR app and Snapseed and shared on Instagram.

Man, photo opportunities are scarce around here, or my usual thing of “too far away”.
Here they are anyway.

I was wrong (and so is one of my apps) about Robins not being in Canada in winter. My friend, Leila, lives in Canada and has told me she does see Robins in her area of Saskatchewan in winter. She commented on my post about seeing so many of them here in huge flocks.
Here’s what she said about them, “Donna you will find this interesting but a certain amount of Robins stay here for winter. We have seen flocks of them in some of our most bitter days. Apparently if the food source is plentiful more will stay. Interestingly enough most people here don’t realize this.”
I had no idea they could make it through months and months of snow and sometimes very harsh conditions.
Thanks for the info, friend!

I’ve got to quit actively seeking wildlife and start looking at the beauty around me.
You want to know why? Of course you do! I see wildlife and I remember to take pictures of the beauty surrounding me.
I got a brief glimpse and a crappy picture of a doe this afternoon, the first one I’ve seen in several weeks. It made me happy even if I didn’t get a good shot of her.
It’s getting to be that time of year though. Fall is definitely here with the deer beginning to move about more and I have even more evidence with a few shots of leaves turning.
A couple of software “painted” pictures in this bunch means, I love the pictures, but they just weren’t sharp. Painting fun to the rescue!
It was a good afternoon.
It was a GREAT photo seeking round this evening. Some are not stellar, but the not so stellar shots make me very happy! You’ll see!
