The Hooded Warblers breed and nest in this area during the summer but will be leaving soon to spend the winter somewhere in Latin America or the Caribbean.

Southward Moving Sun (novembergale)
That's it. No more sunsets from the yard. The sun has moved too far south. I will have to go down to the lake or up the hill for sunset pics from now until spring.

Imperiled Species (novembergale)
I've seen very few Monarch Butterflies in the area this summer. Today was the first time I saw one in our yard. Considering the fact that we have seven acres full of milkweed and wildflowers, their absence is very disturbing. They are a species in big trouble right now and I hope they can survive this crash in their population.

Thank you! To quote Rachel Carson, author of "Silent Spring" ~ "The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the Universe, the less taste we shall have for destruction."

Wonderful photos! Your photography, with its wide variety of subjects, does more to help us appreciate and value our environment than the harangues of liberal environmentalists. We naturally protect what we value.
