It is the First Day of Autumn

Summer went by too quickly. I did not get outdoors as much as I planned, partly because many days were uncomfortably hot. 

These are September scenes, although not all are from this current year. A duck is swimming in the first picture, and the second picture is from Monday. There is a bird perched high in that tree. 

The insect is a stinkbug seen through a window.  Below that we see a crow on a dead tree. 

 The hummingbird picture is one I took in September 2019. This year I stopped feeding hummingbirds early when there was an avian infection going around that some experts thought could be spread by feeders, although since then they have announced that it probably was not and might be related to the large number of cicadas that hatched. 


  1. I am glad to see the heat of summer behind us. I am looking forward to the first frost.

  2. Summer did pass by quite quickly, and I do enjoy the Autumn months.
    Lovely selection of photographs on your post, thank you.

    All the best Jan

  3. Every shot of this post, with its protagonist, seem to wish us a Good Autumn, you speak with images and their characters without words, dearest Linda, thank you for being so special!
    May your weekend ahead be filled with joy and smiles
