Last vestiges of color

I took these photos a few weeks ago, when we were left with only a few trees around that still wore their fall finery.

Even though I'm showcasing colors here, I couldn't help but turn this image of tattered Beech leaves into black & white.

At present the American Beech and Sweetgum trees are still hanging on to their leaves, but the mighty oaks are finally starting to let go.

I gasped! at the first photo! The others are lovely, too. I just discovered your blog and I'm about to explore your earlier posts.

I am in love with image number 2. Beautiful!
The walking sticks are awesome and so is the fungus and the shot you got of the doe is amazing! It is always wonderful to come here and take a look around. : ) Always.

Image 3 makes me want to explore this woodland for more gems like this. Also enjoyed the 'fungi' post & like you I need to do some 'homework' on ID! FAB

All so beautiful! The 3rd shot is my favorite!

P.S. Thanks for your good wishes for Scout!! :-)

Jain - Hello and welcome! So glad you stopped by. Always good to meet another Ohio nature blogger. I'll be over to see your place in a bit!

Meg - Thank you so much. It's always a pleasure to hear from you, my fellow woods-dwelling, southern-Ohio sister!

Frank - Maybe one of these days I'll take everyone on a proper photo tour of our grounds. I really love where we live!

Shelley - Thank you so much! It's good to hear from you. I'm so glad that Scout is back to her old puppy self. Whew!

Michele - Thanks for your feedback. Image #3 seems to be popular. I might have to try working that into a new blog header image....!
