Thirty Days Has September.....

And so we bid September "Ado." I have enjoyed great photo opportunities this month and I am particularly indebted to the very patient dragonflies of Michigan for letting me practice on them with the Raynox macro lens for the Panasonic FZ-20 and FZ-35. I am doing my best to wear them out!

        The hard woods are giving up their leaves in the grand style we enjoy at the 45th parallel.

The forest floor is thick with ferns and mushrooms.

                             A disgruntled Garter Snake is not amused with picture taking.

I was sitting precariously atop an 8 foot step ladder near my giant maple when this Black Capped Chickadee posed for a portrait.

                     Old red barn, sunflowers, billowing clouds. A classic Mid-Michigan moment.

We'll soon be saying good-bye to the Dragonflies and Damselflies until next spring except for a few stragglers like this beat up old veteran.
