Encore Performance (novembergale)
Encore performance to the gorgeous sunset we had last night! I've traveled quite a bit in my lifetime and I must say that sunsets over the Great Lakes are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen.

Wild Cardinal Flower (novembergale)
"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not." ~ Georgia O'Keeffe

Soaked (novembergale)
This immature Ruby-throated Hummingbird seemed to be enjoying the downpour. It sat for quite a while on the feeder just splashing itself in the rain drops as if it were taking a shower.

Ummm... Please bring back September! I don't know what happened here, but I was dismayed to see the September photos gone.

I enjoyed the August photos, of course. I'm not a photographer, nor an artist, but I love scrolling through your photos. I can't evaluate them from a photography standpoint, as so many do in the comments in the photo galleries, but your photos lift my spirits and enrich my life. I can't get out to see the vistas and wildlife that you see, and I don't have a place where I can see the sunrises and sunsets. I'm mostly stuck at home, looking at the house across the street and the computer screen. I've really appreciated the wonderful photos you have posted.
