Against the backdrop of Fall foliage

 

This autumn has been exceedingly pleasant despite the heated rhetoric on both sides that may lead to the winter of our discontent!  I’ve tried to capitalize on this Indian Summer and take in the beauty of the natural landscape.  As the leaves begin to transform and display their rich hues before falling off, the season offers excellent opportunities to photograph the dazzling colors of the foliage and the birds that get ready to migrate to warm weather.  Trying to spot tiny birds such as warblers high up in the branches can be quite challenging but when you do, it is indeed a fulfilling moment.  The Palm Warbler and the White-breasted Nuthatch below were photographed at the Celery Bog in West Lafayette, while the rest were taken at the Audubon Sanctuary in Bent of the River, Southbury, CT.
