|Cape May Point, New Jersey, is always nice -- but I love it in October. The leaves are changing, the summer tourists are gone, and the hawks are migrating. Click on the photos to enlarge.
|Today there were lots of hawks sitting in the trees around the Point, like this handsome Cooper's hawk.
|But one of the best moments of my long walk was when I paused by a creek to investigate a quiet smacking sound. It turned out to be this mallard duck voraciously munching duckweed. Apparently duckweed is beak-smacking good.
|The autumn leaves looked great.
|The rest was soothing scenery.
