  1. The moose looked pretty healthy, not covered with ticks. All beautiful pictures. Thank you.

  2. Thanks, Steve & Jim, for giving us the moon & the stars. If left alone, I wonder how the hornets will fare with their choice of nest site. A single red leaf - awesome! Thank you, all.

  3. Thanks for sharing such beautiful photos...especially the picture of the timberdoodle. I have never heard of such a bird...always nice to learn something new!

  4. Great pictures as always! I agree with Alison, nice to see healthy moose around here.

  5. I don't think it is possible to take a bad picture of Smalls Falls! Nice!

  6. Beautiful pictures
