Sunspots (novembergale)
Sunspots were clearly visible on the sun and then as it dropped lower on the horizon, the sun turned to pink.
Pink sunset over Lake Erie this evening.
Lunch Break (novembergale)
Made the most of my lunch break by snapping a few shots of the Clearwing Hummingbird Moths in the coneflowers.

Babies!!! (novembergale)
I've seen the hens in the field behind our house with the little ones, but this morning one of them finally brought the babies closer to the house to clean up sunflower seeds under the bird feeder.

A little closer shot of some of the little ones. We counted 11 of them following the hen around our yard this morning.

Shadows behind the rose bush gave me a nice black background to show off this yellow beauty.

Each time you add a photo to the blog, I enjoy slowing scrolling through the previous photos to get to the new one. Each photo is worth studying again and again. I do appreciate that you collect these into a blog, for otherwise I would miss some.
