Changing Season

September–

A couple of rufous hummingbirds in the honeysuckle this morning, nectaring up prior to migrating south. Red-breasted nuthatches hanging upside down from sunflower heads.

Dew lingering in the shade, on rocks and huckleberry leaves.

Perfect blue sky. Green reflections in water. Vine maple leaves painted yellow and red as the chlorophyll drains away. Warmth in the sun, coolness in the shadows. The presence of centuries-old Douglas-firs. Red sockeye salmon under the Cooper River bridge. They came back!
