A Walk on the 'Hoopee River Sand Ridge

I decided to take a little walk on the sand ridge yesterday with my 50mm lens, just focusing on the little things around me that make this place so beautiful this time of year. The deep reds and oranges of the turkey oaks


The yellow of the sweet gum leaf

Colorful leaves of the sparkle berry bush

The sun peaking through the flowering broom straw

The flowers which once were colorful a few months ago, have now made fluffy seed heads ready to be dispersed by breezy fall weather to begin life anew in the spring.

The bird nest that raised a family a few months ago, now abandoned and filling with fall leaves.

The deep imprint of a rather large deer...which makes me want to put down this camera, pick up my rifle, and head for my deer stand :)

Phlox at the farm.

This only grows on the Ohoopee sand ridge.

Random Pics from the Farm

I love this pic even though the exposure wasn't right...it still looks COOL this way!

I'm trying to get the camera to focus on the hummer but they're so fast it's hard.

Family of turkeys in the hay field. They won't let me get close. As soon as I pull off the highway, they start heading for the woods.

Coneflowers are so bright and beautiful!

Skeeter and the Swimming Pool

This dog loves the water more than our lab!

He snorkels,

and splashes,

and then just rolls around in the cool water.

Mama "Mocker"

She has a bug.

She sits high on a limb searching for more.

Feeding her babies (nest to right).
