Skywatch Friday--With Trumpeter Swans

Well, here it is, Skywatch Friday and I'm not going to make it to Carpenter Nature Center--I'm leaving on a jet plane for the Ohio Audubon Assembly this weekend. I'm looking forward to hanging out with some Ohio birders and hopefully a few will come to Birds and Beers. Anyway, last Friday at Carpenter, the clouds were down right funky. They were so thick, almost like the consistency of whipped whole cream. Planes would cut through the clouds near the Minneapolis Airport leaving a streak long after they disappeared. The fall colors are still peaking and brought out the blue beauty in the clouds.

Sounds like they have a new meme cookin' over there called My World Tuesday--basically, you show your world in photos. If I could create my world, it would be permanent autumn. I just love those colors.

I found this photo from Carver Park a week ago. I was trying to get bluebird photos when I heard what sounded like an old toy trumpet. Then two huge trumpeter swans flew over--such beautiful flashes of white in the sky blue sky against the autumn colors.
