It rained on St Paul today. It was a lot of rain, even some hail, and moved the tennis session inside to Fort Snelling, where it was dry, but a little noisy from the rain beating on the bubble. The tennis was fun, but the weather made the acquisition of suitable photos for blogging just too hard. These are from last weekend.
On a walk at Crosby Farm, these curious deer were close enough to get into a photographic frame. There were three of them, a doe and two first year fawns. They stayed around long enough to get their photos taken then thought better of the situation and bounded off.
And a slightly larger herd, but this time of Segway "vehicles." They were practicing their skills in the area around the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis. I caught them gathering together for a conference of some kind. You don't often see a herd of Segways of this size even in the wild. It might have been these guys.
The signs of autumn are growing more numerous in Minnesota. It has been a nice long spell of above normal weather, but soon the kingdom of winter will begin to prevail.
