I wasn't sure what we would see after all the leaves had fallen on this hike. But look at the splendid contrast. I think most of it was due to dreaded buck thorn growth. Do you see the hawk in this photo?
Now you can see him. I love the layers of fall color.
The sun sparkles.
Meanwhile the hawk hunts...
He thought maybe the view would be better from here before he finally flew off into the forest.
A splendid stem.
A fuzzy fall flower.
A splendid Fall day at Richardson Nature Center. Priceless.
