Our World Tuesday: Winter approaches

We had a hard rain a few days ago and that night the temperature dropped below freezing. I think the way the rain on top of the leaves froze ended up looking like plastic wrap.

It's a good thing I like leaves because my three large oak trees are dropping blankets of leaves.
One day a female cardinal turned her beak up at me while I was photographing from a distance.
The next day a male cardinal seemed to have a similar reaction to being photographed.
The neighborhood cats seems to all gravitate to my overgrown garden.
The transition from fall to winter is starting to be very obvious.
The bare trees are beginning to out number the ones that still haven't released their leaves.
One good thing about winter is there is more light at the end of the tunnel when there isn't dense shade from the leaves on the tree.

How great to discover you actually have a light at the end of the tunnel, Carver! What a great shot and frame for the winter wonderland ahead in your world. Also love the expressions on the birds … perhaps they are wondering why the ground is a little tougher now on their lovely beaks! :)

Lovely photos, the cardinals are pretty. I hope they stay safe from the cat. It is great now that the leaves are off the trees, it is easier to see the birds. Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving.

My oaks are dropping all their leaves as well. by the end of this week there will be none on the trees. I know the trees north of here are already bare. Funny that you have ice already. we have not had any yet! I agree, it does look like plastic wrap!

I love your carpets of leaves, the delicate abstract painting the frost created, the cardinals and cats and the bare forests all make up a wonderful tapestry of the life around your.
