I saw robins everywhere I went. Atlanta was full of them. I rarely see them central Florida.
My first red headed woodpecker. I saw this flash of red go by. At first I thought it was another red bellied woodpecker and when I started to follow it I realized it was a red head.
It landed on a gravestone statue.
Gone With the Wind is one of my favorite books. When I was a teenager, my grandmother gave me her hard copy that was printed in 1936. I've read it at least a dozen times. There was a sign pointing to the writer of the book so it was pretty easy to find. She's buried next to her husband. She was less than 2 years older than me when she died. She was hit by a car.
Its' really cool the way you can see the part of the skyline of the city behind the old statues.
Oakland cemetery is another place I never went to while I lived in Atlanta. I just discovered a really cool place to take pictures. I had heard about it and always knew there was some old cemetery near downtown Atlanta but never thought to go there until I started taking pictures. It was around 96 degrees when I got there so I didn't stay long. My goal was to get baby panda pictures at the zoo and I knew the cemetery was close by so I finally stopped in. I only walked less than half of the cemetery. You can take tours at scheduled times that gives you more of the history of the place. I might try that on my next trip. It's very scenic and if it wasn't for all of the beautiful old growth trees, you 'd be able to see the whole downtown skyline. You can see parts of it now but in the winter when the leaves are gone you should be able to see it all. I can't wait to get back there at Christmas time. The highlight of my walk was seeing the red headed woodpecker. In Florida, we just have boring old bald eagles nesting in our cemeteries.
