Nature Notes and Signs of the Season


Visit Michelle at the eye-catching Nature Notes Thursday Meme for incredible photos of the season. You just won't believe the pictures she takes of insects and leaves and birds!




This is the fireworks tree from a couple weeks ago. I passed it in the misty/rainy afternoon yesterday and I saw that it has dropped a lot of leaves, far more than you see in this photo. It's been raining and windy, which helps the trees lose their leaves. I missed taking this photo on the only sunny day we had this week, so you can sort of imagine that the day was misty with a glaring overcast sky. Just knowing that makes me squint when I look at it and want my sunglasses.

Awesome! Most of the trees up here have long since passed the point of being anything worth looking at.

That's one amazing tree!
I don't think I've seen such brilliant colours before.
WOW :D

That's a fantastic tree. Such a fiery blush of color.

Cool.

We get leaves like that on maple trees sometimes. Not so much this year, though.

Fireworks is a great name for this tree. You captured its flaming colors!

Gorgeous! I pass a few like this on my way home every day, and always look forward to seeing them. Are they sugar maples, maybe?

Most of the leaves are down here, too. It's always sad to see them go.
