The beauty of nature

Colorful fall leaves mark a large bald-faced hornet's nest hanging in a tree on a hillside near Elkton in rural western Oregon on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018. Known for their aggressiveness, baldfaced hornets have a unique defense in that they can squirt or spray venom from their stingers into the eyes of nest intruders. The venom causes temporary blindness.

The great walnut thief

A Steller's jay makes off with a walnut from the roof of a shed under a tree on a farm near Roseburg in rural western Oregon on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018. Several of the birds were talking the nuts into nearby trees and using their strong beaks to break open and eat the walnuts from inside the shells.

The one that got away.
That's one happy looking bird.
