A Throwback Thursday Wednesday Walk from September 22nd 2016

in wednesdaywalk •  28 days ago 

Yesterday ended up being wicked busy with doctor's appointments, phone calls, and paperwork (to clarify for my mother - no worries, mom - it was all related to stuff you're aware of! 😊). So for today I'm doing a Throwback Thursday Wednesday Walk from September 22nd 2016, which is just three days shy of being exactly three years ago.

I did share a few of these on some of my social media accounts back then, but a large number of these two dozen shots have been collecting dust on my hard drive since I snapped them whilst wandering around our yard off and on over the course of the whole day.

Speaking of wandering, don't forget to wander on over to @tattoodjay's latest post, called Wednesday walk challenge -Silver sands and Steem Basic Income Give away which has some beautiful captures (my favorite is the fourth one) from an early morning walk along the boardwalk from Walnut Beach through Silver Sands State Park in Milford, Connecticut.

Now, on to my photos of a Throwback Thursday Wednesday Walk from September 22nd 2016!

  Wednesday Walk from September 22nd
Around 8am, the clouds in the sky looked wicked cool. Funny though - this was the view to the left of our driveway...

...while this was the view to the right - almost cloud free, with the moon hanging out almost in the center of the shot.

Thanks to the Moon Giant website, I can tell you this was the Waning Gibbous (one day away from Last Quarter) moon.

It looked so cool hanging out in the blue sky!

I don't quite remember why I meandered down our driveway that particular day, but I do remember looking up and admiring the stained glass effect of the fall leaves against the cloud covered sky

A little later in the morning, I spotted this little one near the bird feeders - I'm fairly certain it's a young Goldfinch.

Not too far away, a Phoebe perched and watched the goings on...

...I'm not entirely certain this is a Juvenile Phoebe...

...but I'm positive it was adorable!

Not sure if this Goldfinch is getting a drink, or checking its reflection in the water.

A short distance away in the woods, I found a little mushroom fairy village....
...it was obviously magical because close by...
...as you can see in this shot, a Crow left me a magical gift!
Thanks to the Feather Atlas site, I was able to figure out that this is a secondary wing feather
I love the look of brightly colored leaves against a blue sky!
Of course, sunlight on the still green leaves is pretty awesome too.
Speaking of gifts, this Mourning Dove decided to wander up close to our house...
... to drop of a feather gift of its own!
The young Goldfinch hung out a bit further back in the woods...
... while this young Rose-breasted Grosbeak hung out closer to the feeders.
The Goldfinch then got brave and came over to get a drink.
Then a different Goldfinch that also seemed fairly young, stopped in for a sip or two.
Later, after I dumped out the old water and grass, Mr. Red Squirrel decided to grab a late afternoon drink before the sun disappeared from the sky.

Happy walking & see you next week!

You know, this could easily have been a #featheredfriday post! Love that phoebe! Wonderful photos. The clouds and the moon and those mushrooms.. They are all quite fantastic.

What cool shots and you know me I never mind posts a day or even two late :) some magic indeed ina few of the shots, I love the stained glass feel of the trees, those mushrooms are so cool, and I may be funny but I always find seeing the moon has a kind of magical feel

Some wonderful shots!
I love bird pictures but haven't had too much luck in capturing them. I guess having a water dish for them to come to you helps.
Thanks for sharing!

@traciyork - Lots of beautiful photos here - birds, feathers, magical mushroom villages, moons, flowers, leaves - a little bit of everything on this enchanting walk - thanks for sharing. And nice upvotes and curation here!

Ah, Traci, seems we are all chasing our tails at the moment. Gorgeous photos. I love the autumn leaves. Be well...

The color combination of the autumn leaves and the contrast with their companions is very refreshing for me.

Walking is good for health. We should do that everyday.

Love the goldfinch pics and I never knew about secondary flight feathers , so I learned something too!

Ps I like a good throwback. It's important to not just take pics but also to reflect on them and sometimes time provides the distance back to those moments to see them in a different light.

Awe..the little Phoebe is too dang cute and is my favorite out of these but I'm also a sucker for a pretty cute squirrel too! 😉 💖

A lovely sharing as usual. Love the colour leaves too, can't get that view over here!

I so love that first shot of the mushroom fairy village...!!! OMG, that is the sweetest thing! And that black feather is stunning! Such wonderful photos in this series! Bravo!

Wow! Totally love the moon and the birds photos! Your sky is so clear... We miss our clear sky here in Malaysia... Ours have been hazy for quite some time now... Hopefully the haze is leaving us soon.
