This road...


This road is the road that we traveled to get the photos for 5 out of the past 6 days.  The one with the grain elevator is from another year, another road.


This swamp area is where I photographed the Wood Ducks and the butterflies...




and it is also where I photographed these flowers.  I was too late to photograph the Button Bush.

How about another barn?


This one could use a little bit of work


A barn like this still appeals to me.

A new to me barn....


I know I have passed by this barn, but it sets way back off the road...I think it is a beauty!

Grain elevator


This is one I have been meaning to post for a while...just something about this grain elevator I really like.

More wings...


Usually up at the swamp area, there will be all kinds of butterflies...this time it was only a couple different ones that gave me an opportunity to photograph them.


First this buckeye...


which I think is absolutely beautiful.


Then we have this beauty....


Unlike the Buckeye, I seldom see this particular kind of butterfly.


Going by the white mark on its wing, I think it is a Comma, but feel free to correct me if you know different.  There is another one called a Question Mark but the marking is slightly different.

Getting your ducks all in a row.....


Took a short drive and ended up seeing more Wood Ducks than I have ever seen...for sure at one time, and maybe in my life.  Not that it was such huge amount...


These were quite a distance away....


Every shot is zoomed in, some more than others..


Aren't they beautiful...


And below is a different male.


He and two more that were with him flew away when I got out of the car.


There were more that I didn't get to photograph...

Drive-by


Every now and then we pass by this place in one of our rambling drives.  I wish I knew just where it is...I would like to see what it looks like now.

Barn house today....


I posted a photo from a few years back HERE....I knew the general area it is in so I got on Google Earth and narrowed it down to where I thought it about had to be and joy of joys, I was right.  I only grabbed a quick shot....but still you can tell it is a home and is loved.



This was out at the corner of their yard.

The corn is turning brown....


These were taken over a week ago...


At that time we were still seeing fields of corn that were mostly still green.  Now they are all starting to turn brown and some are just basically all turned color with hardly even a hint of green left.

Uncounted....


When we were out yesterday evening, I happened to look down the way, and there on the power line poles this is what I saw.  I know there is a term for this type of power line...it is not the ones you see in the neighborhood, but for the life of me I cannot think what they are called.


Just have to show you a few different views.


I also zoomed in on the next poles on down the way and they had birds sitting on the cross piece, too. Just not as many.  But it was so far I it would have been worthless photos.


And these are not too fabulous, but at least you can make out they are birds.  I had thought I would count them but haven't taken the time to attempt it.

From the strip pits...


We drove through the strip pit area late this evening...


These were from the car...just zoomed in.  They were across a ditch and a fence.  Even if not for the fencing, I was in flip flops and would not have attempted the ditch.


They were at least 15 ft away....


just love to see them...


and this is my favorite although it is a result of me not being able to hold still...

From another year....


I am seldom out at sunset time these days, so I enjoy the old photos I have taken.

The signs are there...

If one pays attention now, there are signs everywhere that fall is approaching...


this dogwood leave was laying on the porch the other day.  Others are out in the yard.


The tree is starting to have the red berries....


And my wisteria is showing some yellow.  I think my wisteria has seen better days...

Trees here and there are getting red spots, and one tree we pass is yellow all over.  Since I am the driver, I cannot snap pics like I would like to.

Maybe the last....


This may well be the last hibiscus bloom from our yard this year.  I only took these two photos with my phone.  The photo above was cropped.


I don't know why but it almost had almost a flat appearance...in real life.  I don't mean from the photography.


just had to play with the second photo a bit.

A blast of color from the not so distant past....


This was taken just two or three years ago...I am so hoping to have brilliant color again.

Donkey


We saw this donkey the other day on our little ramble.  Usually the donkeys I see are gray.....
