Throwback Thursday

On Autumn Migration

Throwback Thursday travels back 14 years. I had gone down to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario for the sunrise. I don’t remember what the sunrise was like but I did find a small group of juvenile Red Knot on the shoreline. Having hatched a few months previously they were heading south for the first time.

I spent some time with them, after a while they were comfortable enough to feed, bathe, preen and sleep in front of me.

This individual is feeding amongst the rocks on the shoreline.

October Squares: Lines of Sandhill Cranes

For day 12 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge here are several lines of Sandhill Cranes flying to roost at sunset.

Taken at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the autumn. Sandhill Crane flocks can number in the hundreds of birds as they congregate in the area on their way south for the winter.

As a double lines contribution there’s also so interesting streaked cloud.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Brazenly Bronze

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Brazenly Bronze.

I spent part of the weekend looking for some bronze autumn colour and then remembered this shot from Saskatchewan in the late 1990s.

Quaking Aspens reflected in a slough in the autumn.
