Nature Notes and Our World: mid November

I always enjoy photographing ice that I remove from the bird baths in cold weather.


We still have a lot of fall color but it's changing very fast and lots of leaves have dropped.


I'm going backwards through this past week with the first shots being weekend ones and the end of the post is earlier in the week.


Our fall color is always protracted with the earliest leaves changing months before the last one in central NC where I live.


By the time my oak trees (shot below) change colors it is usually late fall and they don't last long at all before dropping.


I took the next shot in my driveway photographing above my neighbors roof tops across the street.


I love the tree below which is around the corner from my house.


The next tree is one I can see from my deck which is at a neighbor's house on the street parallel to mine.


I spotted the hair stylist display on a break from work.


On another work break, I spotted the bluebirds calling to each other (one on the sign one in the bottom right corner).


That looks like a possible nest from last spring below.


The American Robin was sunning on railroad tracks.


We're starting to have bare trees which I love.


Click here for nature notes and here for Our World Tuesday.

Br, ice. Funny how sitting on a track makes the robin warmer. I like bare trees, too - easier to photograph birds! Stay warm.

Your world is wonderfully colorful. And you're lucky to have it for so long. I was driving along a pretty street with red and yellow trees on Wednesday thinking I should pull off and snap some pictures, but I had a carful of old lady friends and thought I'd better not. Bill and I went back the same street on Sunday and every leaf had fallen. (We had a cold snap the end of the week.) So thanks for sharing your red leaves as my world doesn't have any.

The trees are still so beautiful, Carver! But the bare limbs will be beautiful too.

Lovely color and all of our trees are bare and it is a good thing with the amount of snow here and yet to come shortly...I love ice too.... so interesting to photograph.. Michelle

Sue Demeter-St Clair said...

Beautiful Autumn shots. I love the cardinal and robin pics :) Here it is already icy and bare. Winter is arriving too soon.

Kalantikan said...

I have been dreaming to see those colors too, however all my trips abroad are either in the spring or summer, haha! I just content myself in photos in blogs, so thanks.
