Bob Gilreath went on what he says is possibly his last time on the water for this year, for a fishing excursion he said, but the photos here today look more like a bird watching event and I'm not complaining at all.

He captured some ducks taking flight, while at the same time capturing the color that is emerging along the water's edge. It sure is pretty to see the reds in the trees and the grasses and weeds adding their own fall color to the mix as they turn brownish and dry up for the winter.

I'm not sure about the ducks in the first two photos, but those are Merganser ducks in Bob's third shot. They always bring a smile to my face because they just look like they're having a 'bad hair day", so to speak.

And what "last boat ride of the year" would be complete without a pass under the Portage Lake Lift Bridge and a picture of your wake with the bridge behind you? Enjoy!

And enjoying, I am...thanks for the boat ride!

Always some sad feelings putting the boat up for the year. But these are beautiful photos! Love the ducks!

Ahhhh, yes. Autumn in the Keweenaw.

Mary, I always enjoy reading your explanations of the pictures - it adds so much to them! Thank you very much for all you do on Pasty Central!!!!

Mary says: Thank you so much for the kind words, below the bridge (Wolterdr)! That's so nice of you to say and nice to hear now and again..it assures me that someone reads my notes! Thank you again, you made my day! :-)

Great fall photos, Bob! Thanks so much for the expedition!


By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Saturday, October 3, 2015 - 10:51 am:

Mary...the reason they look like they're having a bad hair day is because they all have feathered haircuts. :-)

Great pictures of your last fishing trip for the year. Thanks for sharing. My guess is that the ducks in pictures one and two are mallards.

I echo "Below the Bridge's" comments. I was just thinking that the other day. Thank you Mary and thank you Pasty Cam!

Mary says: Why thank you, too, Sldmi, so very nice of you to echo those sentiments!

" 🎶 the reds in the trees and the grasses and weeds 🎶 "


Gee, that almost sounds like a song lyric from something like "Autumn in the UP". 😉

...and "the reds and the grasses and weeds"; All I can conjure up is peyote.

" at least their not sporting mullets."


I think there's something "fishy" about that; I'll just have to "mullet" over. (And that's two <groans> fer you, Alex!) 😉

I love the 3rd picture. I like the rest of them
too, but the 3rd one is simply my favorite!


By Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Sunday, October 4, 2015 - 09:48 pm:

Ha, ha, Alex...great comment.

And FRNash, maybe I missed my calling! :-)
There's sure lots of groaning going on in here today!
;-)
