  1. These are great shots! Living in Southern California fall leaves are few and far between. There are certain trees in different places in our town I watch for as fall begins. But our temperatures have been anything but autumnal this week -- up in the low 80's. Great for bird watching and enjoying the patio. There is one tree on our circlewhich sheds its leaves ( about 10 houses on the circle ) and I noticed today someone is going to have to sweep them up.

  2. Here, it's 35 degrees F outside at the moment.

  3. Lovely shots - the oak leaf skeleton especially. I love all those oranges and reds, and the season is so fleeting it is no wonder we're always trying to capture it in any way we can: photos, sketches, poetry.

    The penultimate photo freaked me out a little at first, because after the butterfly pics I saw it as a carpet of moths ...

  4. Great photo's Brill Blog
    Stunning Autumn this year
