Autumn.


The season of colour change when the verdant greens give way to yellows and golds.

 Delicate and fragile forms sprout up through the leaf litter.

Elsewhere the varied fruit-bodies have appeared ready to release their spores for the next generation.

A cock Pheasant carries his gorgeous autumnal tones around with him wherever he wanders.

The rut has quietened down so this Red Deer stag finds time to browse and replenish some of its lost reserves.

Temperatures are falling and the overhead canopy slowly allows more light to reach the floor as individual leaves float down to join their comrades and create a colourful carpet on which to tread.  FAB.

  14. You have a lovely way of writing Frank, I enjoy it. Lovely fall colors and I love all the fungi. I don't see that many different kinds or perhaps I am not looking around enough to find it.. Thank you for linking into Nature Notes... Michelle
