2016—Orchard

I went for a drive the other afternoon into Sutter County and through the rice fields in search of potential spots to photograph migrating  birds.  What I discovered were orchards in Nicolaus.  I think these are English walnuts although I didn’t see a single walnut.  And, I’m surprised the trees still have their leaves.  I remember the walnut tree in our backyard when I was growing up in Santa Rosa and it seems like we were constantly raking up leaves starting in October.
