Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

As I stepped out to catch the beauty of the sunset, fading behind the pines ..

.. the silence was broken by the honking of a skein of Canada geese ..

.. soon the sky was filled with thousands of them ..

.. gliding gracefully into the cut-down cornfield, where they will rest up for a while before continuing south.

Transient beauty

On a dreary and stormy Halloween morning,

the rising sun broke through the clouds,

and graced us with a rare rainbow against the barren western horizon.
