I have been featuring the great blue herons I photographed on a walk this past Sunday on my other blog . I took so many shots of the four great blues I spotted, that I thought I'd use some of the shots I didn't post on my other blog for this week's nature notes.
I'm glad we had some clear days over the weekend because this week has been off to a rainy, chilly start. I like the cooler air but driving to work in the rain in rush hour traffic hasn't been great.
Since I've been having to work at the office instead of at my home computer this week, I have been noticing more and more changes in the leaves on the highway.
We still have a long ways to go for the full fall color but I am enjoying paying attention to each new change I spot.
I haven't been risking life and limb though, to take photographs (or at least not many) while I'm driving in bumper to bumper traffic to and from work. Just as well it has been raining as it hasn't been as much of a temptation as it sometimes is to sneak a driving shot.
The only exception is when the traffic is at a total standstill, I do sometimes sneak a photograph while driving. Also in town at stop lights I will sometimes take a shot or two. I thought for my last shot I'd show you the nandina bushes in their fall colors outside the office where I've been working this week. The big trees are still green but glad that the bushes have donned their fall clothes.
