Leaves And Other Fall Stuff.

It was a sunny an unseasonably warm day here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Perfect for walking but unfortunately I had to work and only got out for  an hour before the sun sets around 5 p.m. It was enough time to capture some on the remaining color in the leaves. Fall walk (23 of 29)

Some of the trees are naked now, having lost all of their leaves, while others have only a few remaining. Some, however, like the oaks and some maples still are arrayed in their peak fall colors. Fall walk (5 of 29)

Most of the plants have died now and all that remains are their fruits or seeds. The milkweed pods are mainly empty although a few still  filled with their fluffy white seeds. Fall walk (4 of 29)

And there are still some berries hanging on the dead pokeweed plants that never survive the first hard frost. Fall walk (2 of 29)

I was surprised to see a tansy plant still in bloom and more surprised to find this insect which looks like a mosquito feeding on it. Fall walk mosquito (1 of 1)

Although  a lot of color remains on the trees, and should survive a bit longer with the warm temperatures,  it won’t be long until all is brown and dead as Winter takes hold.Fall walk (27 of 29)

At least my bird feeders and backyard will still have some Winter residents, such as this squirrel and his friends. Fall walk squirrel 09 (1 of 1)

And the bird feeders will be visited by the finches, tit mouses, nuthatches, chickadees and other birds that are not as smart as their cousins who fly south for the warmer weather. Fall walk birds house finch - (1 of 1)

Wish I could have enjoyed more of it but it was still a wonderful Fall day in Northeastern PA. Here is a link to some more photographs from my walk. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-page-2/nggallery/photographs-page-two-blog/late-afternoon-fall-walk-november-3-2015
