The Signs of Fall


Dragonflies are dragging their feet about leaving.


The red berries are ready for migrating birds.  (although I have no idea if they eat these)


 Mushrooms are exploding onto the scene.  This one was the size of a dinner plate.


 People heart Fall.  


We're all talking turkey.  (And eating.  Hee, hee.)


Yellow leaves sparkle in the sun.


There are so many mushrooms you could say they grow on trees.  


Now if we could just say the same about money. 


The wild flowers lose their petals.


The views are tinged with rust and gold.  Just like life.  

All these photos were taken at Westwood Hills and Spring Lake Park this Fall.  For more birds visit Wild Bird Wednesday
And for more turkeys......take a gander below.

Nice set of pictures - we don't get anywhere near the amount of autumn colour (fall color!) that you get!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne.
