SWF>Blue Moon & Reflections

Hi another week has rolled around and I am linking up my post with Skywatch Friday

These are some local shots of our reservoir, the blue moon and a few of my yard birds.

 In morning before leaving for work I was able to catch the almost full Blue Moon setting.



The sky from my deck, the clouds were beautiful.

 One of my pretties, the American Goldfinch found something yummy on this seashell I have sitting on my deck.


A first of the winter season bird has already arrived to the woods around my house, a really Red-breasted Nuthatch. What a cutie one of my favorites. I hope this does not mean we will be having an early winter. I am not looking forward to snow at all.






The reflection of the sky on the lake.











In the evening the blue moon was rising above the lake. I hope you enjoyed my skies and birds of course.

Thanks to Sylvia and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday!. Thank you for stopping by to see my post. I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.
