In our last post, we featured autumn’s vegetation changes. Today we feature creatures, including human ones 🙂
Outdoor workers quickly gathering materials together under cloudy skies, hurrying to finish up those job before the rain pours or snow flies. The osprey family taken flight to southern climes; their now-empty nest settling in to wait for ma and pa’s return next spring. Ducks gathering in local ox-bows, resting and harvesting summer’s growth before winging their way south, too. Summer’s forts deserted as their young builders head back to school. Folks harvesting cat-tails from little row-boats. Deer fattening up in Penticton’s green spaces, layering on their winter woolies. And people layering up too, as they head out for their daily walk in early morning’s chill.
