Autumn leaves and chickadees

Early this week I had high hopes of getting out and taking some new pictures for this weeks You Capture challenge. Unfortunately… the kids had other plans. We’ve been stuck inside due to Paige being really under the weather since Monday. I didn’t want to miss out on the fun this week though, so I went through photos from last week and found one from our adventure up to New Hampshire. There were pictures of the kids playing in leaves, pictures of them playing with the sandbox, but this photo has really stuck with me. The birds payed little attention to the kids that day, they were more focused on stocking up for winter, on a beautiful fall day. So simple and peaceful. So autumn.

  8. I love this capture. Perfect autumn!

  9. Yes, autumn SHOULD be peaceful and beautiful. I find it nerve-wracking thinking about winter coming. But that’s just me. I do love seeing the world wind down a bit… but then we as humans seem to wind up more–more things going on, more activities, and the rush and the stress of life. I need to chill out! Great shot of the chickadee enjoying the moment.
