I met the doe and her three fawns this morning. When they saw me, mother and two fawns bounded off in one direction, but the third was separated, and went off in another direction, swimming across a narrow stretch of water, and then bounding across a swamp and onto Sheep Island. They were too fast for pictures!
The painted turtles were out everywhere right at mid-day, sunning themselves on logs anywhere they were in the sun.
I also saw a flock of four ducks (American Black Ducks, I think) enjoying the sun. As I kayaked by, a couple of them flew off and landed farther into the marsh.

I haven't seen many ducks lately; maybe it's the cooler weather that has them out during the day, or maybe it's the start of migration...
but this evening, even the sky had a fall look to it.
