It's also continuing to rain a great deal.
Still mostly green leaves although there are a few exceptions to that.
The stripes on the bee seem coordinated with the wildflowers.
The way the small trees fell in the next shot almost look like a frame for a wooden house.
I can't get over spotting a Great Egret at the creek near my house. I guess they heard from their relatives, the Great Blue Herons, that it was a good place to fish.
There's something especially appealing to me about reflections in puddles.
I am looking forward to the blaze of color than is around the corner on these walks.
It varies a lot from year to year but I don't expect most of these trees to change until much later in the month into November.
The North Carolina mountains change into their fall clothes long before we do in central NC.
We'll be heading to the mountains in a few weeks around peak leaf time there.
The next shot is the last one from the end of September.
The rest of the shots are from our very wet beginning of October.
The dogwoods are continuing to change colors well ahead of the other trees.
I like the red berries and how they brighten my yard even when its raining.
This morning was very foggy and the steam was rising up with a mist.
A single oak leaf has changed colors ahead of it's green siblings.
It was so foggy and steamy that I had to click fast as my lens was fogging up.
