The woods are lovely, dark and deep...

We went for a long drive on some back roads in our area....here are some pictures I took of the lake where we ended up. It's a nature preserve and we saw all kinds of birds. There were a bunch of Orioles, all orange and black and a really cool falcon that had a huge nest up in the top of a dead Ponderosa Pine. He kept swooping down to the lake surface from way up in the air, but never caught anything with us looking. I never got a picture of him, it was too dark and he flew too fast! Next time we go, I'll take my telephoto lens.
