Autumn feels like a relief this year. As usual, I am more inclined to watch the season change around me than I am to document it. The trees are a bit muted this year anyway, due, I suspect, to the mercilessly dry summer.
There go the Canadian geese. Even from this distance, a hundred of them all at once make a lot of noise.
I know almost nothing about the migration of birds of prey. Three red-tailed hawks circled past just after I photographed the geese. I guess they are traveling together, but it surprises me to see them in numbers greater than two.
Perhaps they will be dropping back down to two, judging by the squawking and dive-bombing going on.
