i am blessed and have so much to be thankful for...God, family, friends, our great country...life. a very happy thanksgiving to all of my wonderful friends in j-land.
it's time for the round robin photo challenge and it's rather unique...not only do we pick our own topic, but we are to suggest future topics! " Put on your creative caps as it's an open challenge. Post three future challenge topics with your entry and then pick one of your topics to photograph for your challenge entry. "Offer three and shoot one," your choice!"
my suggestions: 1) wildlife, 2) railroads, and 3) things that don't belong, something that makes you do a double take. for this challenge i'm posting wildlife...one of my favorite things to watch and shoot. these were taken this week at one of alabama's state parks.

fall colors are at their peak in nw alabama...and i am loving it! here is a small sampling from my outing yesterday...
our summer has been very hot and dry and many of our smaller creeks and ponds have become hardened, caked beds...
this is flint creek...where water lilies flourished and enjoyed by many wading birds and wildlife....so sad. hopefully, it will refill by next spring.
fall bramble....edging a now dry inlet....but still scenic.
cattails along the inlet
bird viewing area at nearby wildlife refuge...sadly is dry, too. this beautiful spot hosts migratory storks and cranes as well as many species of ducks and geese. a favorite spot of many audubon fans.
the colors are so intense and brilliant, i gladly get out just to drink it all in.
