Sunday wonders - F

F is for Fall.

This morning the sun was shining on some nearby trees.  Since this sunshine wouldn't last, we decided on a walk through the local wildlife sanctuary.  Come along with us - lots of photos, not much talk.  A quiet stroll through the trees.

Downy woodpecker peeks out to greet us.

Junco and  towhee forage.

Reflections in the wetland.

Mallards laugh behind a screen of reeds.

Broad-leaf maple 'pavers'.

A scene for painting.

Twisted maple leaves so big they catch in shrubby branches and dry where they fall.

Black-tailed deer's  lunch of blackberry leaves.

For squirrel, a treasure trove.

Heading home.

Looks like an amazing morning.

This is just lovely! How far away do you live from this place? I think you have captured things that most would miss! And were you really that close to the deer? I love the giant curled leaves! Did you find another walker to take your picture?

Thank you for taking us on this lovely morning walk, tonight in my case.
Love all the photos, Stephanie, but particularly the first one, with the trees lined up and colour graduating light to dark, left to right.
And also the last one, which would make a great Shadow Shot one too.

F is also for Fabulous! I adore that last photo with your shadows following along. Beautiful.
