Mid Autumn Rural Ontario 2

Leafless limbs, cow corn, farm

Still autumn!

Winter may be "right around the corner" but it's not here yet!  Largest square: Red-breasted nuthatch  eating peanuts.  Moving clockwise from top right:  flying common mergansers, flying goldeneye, paddler in yellow kayak, swimming gadwall ducks, and paddler in blue kayak.

I am Linking to Mosaic Monday HERE

Wonderful post, it is hard to believe it is still Autumn.. Love your photos and mosaic. Especially the cute Nuthatch! Have a happy day and week ahead!

Kate said...

Those kayakers (is there such a name?) are enjoying the open water while they can before winter sets in; they are hardy souls.

Our photos said...

Beautiful are your photos!

Winter may not be here yet at your place, but it is certainly here at ours!

Its warmed up here so much over night it seems. The first photo is stunning. Lovely lovely photos.

Jill said...

The corn stalks in front of that lovely farm just fills my senses with warmth!

Beautiful images. Winter has finally arrived here.

Judy said...

Both pictures are beautiful. I will be interested to see the birds that stick around for the winter so that they can pose for your camera.

Terri Buster said...

Great shots- I love the farm photo!

RedPat said...

The pics look like autumn but it sure feels like winter, we even got a sprinkling of snow here in the city. You probably got more as I was talking to someone in Aurora last night and it was snowing a lot there!

Taken For Granted said...

Fine fall photos. Especially like the farm shot, but looks like time for the farmer to harvest the corn.

Michelle said...

It makes me think being in those kayaks is still cold!

Mary said...

Fabulous captures! It is still autumn here in NJ, too, although it was bitter cold and WINDY today! :)

William Kendall said...

Good shots!

We've got snow on the ground, and it fell yesterday, so that's more than twenty four hours on the ground...

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

That is an awesome shot of the red breasted nuthatch, nice of it to pose for you!
Lots of cow corn in the fields here too, much of it being cut down in the last while.

I LOVE the nuthatch!

Veronica Roth said...

Hello fellow Canadian. :) Beautiful photos of the birds; especially the nuthatch. I just finished painting two of those little guys on a map. Don't you love the way the descend head first? I'd love to go for a kayak still this year. Here on the West Coast it's nippy but not too cold. I still might get out there once. :)

Lorrie said...

Beautiful photos. The nuthatch is so cute.
Have a wonderful week.

Carver said...

These are all great shots and I love seeing the birds.

Nice collage created.
I always fall in love with pics of birds in flight. The sense of freedom is too much.

My Little Home and Garden said...

It looks like you spent some wonderful time in the countryside enjoying autumn. You're quite right, it's still here.

Mary Howell Cromer said...
