Signs of Fall

Today is August, 12 2011. It is warm, in Northeast Alabama, but while walking in the wilderness behind the house the past few days, I've noticed a few signs that fall might not be too far away.  First are these little yellow butterflies/moth flying around. They are a sure sign that cooler weather is somewhere in the not too distant future.

I've noted several of these the past few days. I've also noticed quite a few colorful leaves that have fallen already. The woods are still very green, but if you look closely there is a bit of color starting to show here and there.

I took this today. The splatch of red really stood out in the green surroundings.

That's all

I haven't read all the way through yet. Where do you live? I'm in SW Connecticut and we are getting a few signs of fall now with some cool evenings and the wind cleaning out some of the spent leaves in the maple trees. I love your photography. Visit my paintings if you like.

Thanks. I live in Northeast Alabama on a mountain. I'll look at your art.
