It was good to be back walking at the reservoir this morning after a couple of weeks away.
|This is a Belted Kingfisher. I'm sorry the picture isn't sharp. I had to zoom in from some distance away.|
|I think this little daisy-like flower is Boltonia.|
|We loved seeing the yellow aspen out west, but it was good to come home to the variety of fall colors that are common in Indiana.|
|The reservoir is a great place for people to exercise their dogs, especially those of the swimming variety.|
|And this dog was definitely of the swimming variety.|
|She looked as if she could have done this all day.|
|She was very well trained, though. She brought her toy back to her human, then sat at her human's side, even after the toy was thrown back into the water, until the okay was given for her to go after it. Then it was as if she was launched from a catapult.|
