I had to smile at your flicker pictures and comments as I was reminded of a morning last year when I watched about 5-6 young flickers on a telephone pole and wires. They were mostly sitting still ... then one would do a strange head bobbing and weaving to be followed by the others!!! Then they would all sit still for a while and do the little head bobbing thing again. It was like they had headphones on and were moving to a favorite piece of music. Flickers have always heralded the arrival of fall for me with their unique clear-cut call. Loved the whole post today. Wood ducks are such a treat to the eye!
So beautiful. I especially like the hiding kingfisher - the golden hazy light perfectly captures the hidden feeling :)
You are in Missouri? Me too! I shared some images in my post today of Highway 100 in Illinois area, although I am in Southeast Missouri and we still have leaves. You must be in northern Missouri. Well, I must say this makes me like following you all the better.
I enjoy your beautiful images and uplifting words. Thank you.
