Yesterday I was enjoying a cup of coffee with a friend in a garden of a church in Eastport, Annapolis (Saint Luke’s Episcopal). A large group of birds were raising a ruckus. I realized that a hawk was on an upper branch of a tree and the other birds, robins, black birds and blue birds had banded together to drive the predator off of their territory. It was an amazing sight.
I’m not positive, but I believe it was a red-tailed hawk. It fled the scene only to return a few minutes later. The melodrama was played out two more times in one hour. The third bout of hostilities was still ongoing as we left the garden.
This photo was taken on September 25, 2019. It may be subtle, but the leaves are beginning to change.
I have to confess. Autumn is not my favorite season. I photographed this butterfly on September 28, 2019. It’s colors are fairly seasonal.
At last! Some autumn leaves. I snapped and cropped this photo on November 24, 2019.And here are some nice Thanksgiving decorations, photographed on November 23, 2019.
Here are a few interesting trees that caught my eye over the past week or so. I am submitting them to Dutch Goes the Photo! Tuesday Photo Challenge. If you follow this link, do explore their blog. There’s a lot going on there!
I used two trees to frame this photograph of a vine-covered tree. Too cool for school, or what? This is my entry for Ragtag Daily Prompt- How Green is Blue? (a.k.a. RDP).

The plan had been to post some pretty mums today; however, when I saw Cee’s post for today, I felt compelled to follow suit. Isn’t it funny how great minds think alike? I took this photograph less than twelve hours ago.

*Please note: I took this photograph earlier this month. It was not originally a color photo that I later edited into b&w. Rather, I used a black & white filter on my camera when I took the shot. While the difference may be subtle, I do think that there is a discernible difference. Thanks, Cee for another opportunity to participate in a photography-community challenge!
