River Reflections

Fifty degrees today!  I had to go out.  My  husband and I went over to Spier Falls Road and walked a mile or so on the road along the Hudson River.  We always hope to spot bald eagles here, since they feed in the open water below Spier Falls Dam and we've spied them here before.  But not today.  We did see turkeys, but they flew off before I could take their picture.  Such galumphy-looking birds, its hard to believe they could get air-borne.  But indeed they do: leaping up into the air and wheeling off to hide in the treetops.

The main show today was the river.  Smooth as glass, with each reflection more beautiful than the last.  I've posted two views, the first looking upstream, the second down.
