I still wasn’t early enough, it was a beautiful start to the day, the radio said, cooler than expected, but to me, it was heavenly. Already the kayakers were inflating their rafts, the joggers were started on their morning runs, dogs were being walked, it was busy enough. I had hoped with a long weekend coming up, people would be waiting for the week-end, no such luck. It was alright, still too early for it to be “crowded”.
There is something about being out in the early morning with the sunshine making its appearance casting shadows that play against the trees and leaves that make me want to catch it … just the right place to be can elude me, but I keep trying. I saw two birds that thrilled me, I didn’t know them, I prepared to take a picture while the two looked back at me.. and then.. it happened, one flew off, as I heard the sound of running footsteps behind me. A runner was on the path and coming up to where I was.. by the time I got the camera up to take the picture, I was looking at empty branches.
Although I scanned the skies, and tree tops during the rest of my walk, I didn’t see one other bird, not a one. heard them, but I didn’t see a feather or outline at all. What I was looking for were signs that the leaves were changing, I did catch a glimpse here and there… but alas it is still too soon.
