October has been spectacular on the south shore of Lake Superior.  The lake is a deep rich blue and everything on shore is bright gold.  The red of the maples has evolved into wpid-wp-1413767657351.jpeggold, blending with the yellow birch and aspen. The entire outdoors reflects a pleasant gold hue.

Most of the flowers have turned to seeds, and migrating birds have gone south. All t20161020_130218he remaining wildlife is getting ready for winter: Chickadees, nuthatches and flying squirrels empty our bird feeder.  Chipmunks and squirrels are eating, digging, and being stalked by a hunting coyote.  The adult bird-62696_640eagles are paired up and travel as a twosome.  The world must look awesome from their favorite pine tree overlooking the big lake, and when they soar above the gold-red landscape.
