Shortly after noon, I looked up from my desk to see a balmy1Upper 60’s. Not a cloud in the sky. mid-October day inviting me to a lunchtime walk. Who was I to decline?
Grabbing my camera, I headed out for a clockwise 1.5 mile walk around Hawthorn Farm. I snapped pictures of fall leaves in between kicking and stomping the acorns scattered about.
Halfway around, I spied a great blue heron stalking. I paused to take a picture and saw it strike, coming up with a small creature in its bill. A mouse?
A one o’clock meeting placed a hard stop on my trek, so I hurried the remainder of the circuit.
Another beautiful day!2Aren’t they all? :-) :-)

Beautiful colors and you didn’t have to travel across the country to see it!
Thanks! And nope — all I had to do was go for a short walk. :-)
Was the Heron near water?… they really seem to like frogs.
Actually, no. It was in the middle of the field in the interior of the “yellow” route.
