Ornamental Grass

We have several varieties of ornamental grass in our garden. The particular "clump" I am highlighting in this post was itself highlighted rather strongly by the late afternoon sun on a crisp fall day. I found this display lively and colorful.

We like our ornamental grasses very much!

Autumn at the Res

During the same walking event of my last post, I took several other pictures, presented below. It's almost impossible for me to let the fall season pass without taking pictures of the local color. In my photos, I'm always striving for yet another way to capture the joy of the changing leaves.

Through the Y



While there were actually four cormorants on this rock, I slightly prefer this composition containing just three, mostly because the rightmost cormorant's head is nicely in the same line, and I can zoom in a little closer within the same frame. I had to wait to just the right moment to catch them all relaxing and not self-preening.

Let's All Look Left


For reference, here's a wider view. You can see that the lowest cormorant also enjoys looking left, while the rightmost one has become slightly distracted from the sun salutation.

Downturn



I was done with my walk and returning to my car when I couldn't resist snapping a photo of this venturesome duo out on the res also enjoying the day.
