I had some time today to take a little walk... I haven't visited my cemetery in a while, and thought I'd pay a visit to see if there was anything exciting going on. (Ha ha) Well, as it turns out, there was!
As I walked into the cemetery, I saw a great bird swooping below the branches of the old trees... it was a hawk! She was on the prowl for prey...
I tried to get a photo of her flying, but none of them turned out. So I finally caught up with her while she was perched in a tree. See above.
Most of the trees are still green, but a few oaks are starting to turn.
I collected a few acorns to use as decorations in the house. I love the acorns from the pin oaks. They are small and have little stripes!
I noticed this little bunch of fur while I was acorn-collecting. I think it's from a squirrel's tail. Could be that there was a scuffle, or maybe the hawk got a little too close to one of the little nut collectors?
I saw some cool flowers along the way, too...
Also, there are a few trees that have truly started turning... one stood out from a distance, as it's amid its greener brethren!
Almost looked like it was on fire, right? And I almost missed this monarch while looking up at this golden tree...
It was a very lovely walk that I'll be taking again later today, after a couple hours at work. K is excited to go for a walk together... the weather has been warm, yet not humid, and is perfect for leisurely strolls. I am loving this autumn!
