Ohio Menagerie

 This is very representative of my commute...cows, geese, and pastures...
 Cornfields and wildflowers...
Bean fields...
 Rivers, trouty, I am told...
 Coursing their way south to the Ohio
 Dreamy ponds...
Fed by pastoral creeks
 And sheep!
 As the weather cools, they become more active during the day
 Oh, and The Occasional Squirrel
 We have crows
 Counting on dropped fries at Burger King
Silly, gorgeous, brilliant birds
 Striking a pose
 Red-tailed Hawks
Circling over the fields
 And geese, always...
 Some will fly south, but others will come here to winter
Did I mention The Occasional Squirrel?
 He thinks he can fly, too!
 Sparrows, of course...everywhere...happy little birds
 The hummies are stoking their furnaces, preparing to head south
They love our cypress vines
 Wonder what these two are saying?
 I will miss them when they are gone, along with our beautiful flowers
I knew they would love this hanging basket!
 We still have a few daisies, amazingly enough
And our mums are coming on strong
 We even found a volunteer pumpkin vine blooming in our poor, dead yard!
Yes, autumn is coming, and it is an election case you hadn't heard...

I love your commute... And out back yard...

You're showing wildlife (very nice BTW), while I'm thinking of the changes coming with the seasons. I'm glad we have both.
