The colors are changing to winter tones down around the pond.
Last year's cattails look like my hair on a bad day.
A few years ago, I watched chickadees ferry fluff back and forth
from a head like this to their nest for about half an hour.
I hope these stay upright until spring nest making time.
This vertical maple leaf caught my eye.
I was able to capture the stained glass effect
just before the wind carried it away.
