This Fall Keeps on Giving

   I didn't start this fall with any intention of taking pictures of fall colors. Colors this year have been brilliant and wide spread. So here goes with some more fall colors that were given to me.

Aspen at the bottom of the escarpment

This time I got some sky in the photo like I was supposed to.

A cooperative pileated woodpecker that posed for me.
       I was surprised to see two flowers in bloom.

Common bluebell

Smooth fleabane

    1. You will have the reds that makes your fall so attractive. We don't have reds.

  2. They are indeed, lovely colours. It is my favourite season of the year and one which can be appreciated best in climates like yours and mine. having just come back from sunny Spain, they don't have anything like the array of colour we both enjoy,

    1. It's sad that this doesn't last very long.

  7. I like the name aster rather than fleabane. It is so abundant and such a good thing for pollinators as the cold weather comes. One cannot ignore fall. We try to pretend we are jaded, but she seduces us every year.

    1. Fleabane is not a good sounding name.

    1. Thankyou. The aspens have been brilliant and when they are mixed with spruce they show off much better.

  16. Beautiful color! And that woodpecker! That is a rare sight around here.

  17. Lovely fall colours. I'm envious, we get very little in the way of colour change around here.

  18. The colors are beautiful! I'm beginning to wonder if we will have pretty fall colors. It has been very dry until now. Most of the willow oak leaves have turned brown and fallen off the trees. We have now had a week of rain and supposedly rain through the coming weekend.

  19. I can never see enough autumn colours but here at my house I have views for ever but no trees. Smooth fleabane is a name I've never heard before.

  20. Hi Red, More nice shots here. My favorite in this series is number 5, right before the woodpecker. Something about it ... it just has it all. Thanks for sharing all the pics.

  21. Hi Red.

    Great takes. I so like #2 and 3. I like the P. Woodpecker too.

  22. Hi Red - I'm still here - still trying to adjust to my eye problems. Love your fall colors, and especially that Woodpecker! We don't have them here. We see Redheaded, Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers. We also have Northern Flickers.

  23. These are great fall shots! I love to see the aspens- anytime of year, but aspens in the fall? AWESOME!

  24. I am enjoying seeing your northern fall colors. This will be my first fall in the South and I will miss that colorful beauty. I won't miss winter much though!
