Placid Warrior River

After harassing the wildlife, Dr. Tim Coleman and I took a leisurely trip up the quiet morning Warrior River.  I snapped this just before we turned around to head back to the river house.  This was October 3rd, and you can see just the slightest color in the foliage.  It would be interesting to get the same shot in about a month to see how it changed.

Wildlife on the Warrior River

After the fog dissipated, Dr. Tim Coleman and I headed out in his boat for a little morning fishing.  We were not the only one's fishing.  This fellow was looking for a good breakfast, I think, but we were a menace to him.  I did not have have my 300mm lense, so we coasted the boat as close as he would let us so I could get this picture with my zoom lense, 24mm to 120mm.  Just after I took this photo, he leapt into the air, but the photos of him flying did not come out clearly.

I think if he could have filed an injunction against us for harassment, he would have.  We snug up on him two more times including one with him standing on a big branch in a tree.
