one fine October morning...

After a wet and dreary last few days, this morning dawned crisp, clear and with autumn perfection! This view is the reason we moved outside the city! Yesterday I made a post office run (now 15 minutes each way :), and noticed the fall color is really beginning...brilliant reds and oranges on the maple trees and yellow on the birches - life is good!
 I had a visitor today - a beautiful large piliated woodpecker usually drops by in the autumn to gorge on the dark blue berries on my virginia creeper.  He had his fill today -- isn't he gorgeous?!

  2. Wow! Stunning photographs, Karon!! Love the view and that woodpecker...I've never seen one eat berries. Occasionally we have one on one of the maples going after bugs but berries?! Wonderful shots! xo
