Default Profile Falls - #2

Here are a few more shots from our day Sunday. I can't remember where all we went.

These first two were at the entrance to Profile Falls.

#2 - Not sure what this is. But, it looked interesting to me.

I can't remember what road we were on for these next two. They were right around the corner from each other. There was a beautiful little waterfall right behind this old house, but it was not accessible from the road.

This is milkweed, before the pods open up. When they do, they fill the air with fine, silklike seeds.
Your Profile Falls shots are really nice. I never seem to be around there on a day with blue skies. This year, I hardly have seen any blue skies. I have gotten some nice trout out of that pool at the bottom of the falls. I suppose I should take some pictures when I'm there, but fishilng always comes first.

More nice shots Patty.

I like the flower and milkweed.

Milkweed leaves are a favorite of Monarch butterfly lava. The lava eat the leaves and retain the cardiac glycosides that make them toxic to predators. In fact many butterflies and bees like the pollen of Milkweed flowers.

Thank you, Brian, Rodney and Lou.

I was thinking that's what they were, but wasn't sure. I've never seen at that stage I guess. Hmmm, might have to go back when they open up then to catch the butterflies. The sky was definitely blue that day. At least in the morning. By 1 or so the clouds started coming in and we had rain by 4ish.

My husband is a fly fisherman. I was wondering why he hadn't brought his rods. I think I've turned him into a monster with the camera. As I was sitting on the edge of the pool, about to fall in, I was wondering what might be under all that water.

Great photos and I really like the ones of the Falls.

Being a fly fisherman also, #4 might be an interesting place to try one's luck. Unfortunately, with all the rain the northeast has received this summer, a lot of the creeks and rivers I fish are quite muddy with high water and high flows. That doesn't seem to be the case at Profile Falls.

Regards

Looks to me like you had a great weekend Patty, I'm hoping I feel better and able to get out this weekend to do some shooting. I haven't felt like going anywhere for the last month or so, must be getting old!

Thank you, bluenose and GW. I don't have a license this year, but I may have to change that. And, practice up a bit. It's been a while since I've fly fished. I usually use that time to get stuff done around the house without hubby hanging around.

I'm sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, GW. I wondered why we hadn't seen you around much lately. My mom's been under the weather the past week, too. Trying times right now.

I think I need to go back this weekend with my new lens and try for some new shots.

Patty
