I’ve had a few Northern Cardinals show up at the feeder. They usually turn up when it is snowing out.

 

It was a beautiful fall day for a hike on the Ice Age Trail. The fall colors were mainly the rust colors of the oaks. One of my favorite subjects for fall photography are reflection shots.

 

After visiting Perrot State Park we drove over to Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge. Unfortunately there was very little wildlife but the colors were nice. We did notice that the water was very high. Lots of rain this fall has made the rivers high.

 

It was a beautiful fall day so we decided to drive down to Trempealeau, Wisconsin to visit Perrot State Park. When we arrived we discovered that the river valley was covered in fog.

 

We arrived at the Blue Hills mid afternoon. There were dark storm clouds right behind us. There were quite a few campers in the area and they were quickly evacuating their campsites.

 

The morning started out with a visit to Copper Falls State Park. It had been a number of years since we visited the park even though it was only a short side trip from our normal drive back to southern Wisconsin.

 

Late in the evening we drove out to Interstate Falls. Again there was a lot of water flowing over the falls.

 

We made a stop at Gile Flowage. There was some nice light and the trees were near peak color.

 

This is first chance I’ve had to look at my trail cam since deer hunting season. I’ve seen at least three of the bucks that were around prior to deer hunting. There are also quite a few doe’s around.

Since mid fall I’ve had quite a few Wild Turkeys around. When we first saw them there 20 turkeys in the flock. The last couple of weeks we have counted 35 in the flock. Several times a week they show up at the house around 9:30am then walk around the house before heading for the neighbors cornfield.

This is the first fox that I’ve seen in quite a while.

It snowed a bit yesterday so I took a walk through the woods looking for colorful leaves that had fallen. I found a nice spot and decided to take some abstract photos of the leaves. It’s always a fun project in the fall.
