About Today’s Photo:

Along with the leaves on the trees, ferns are also changing color this time of year. Wood ferns—common in the, uh, woods—are beginning to drain of their color as the green chlorphyll breaks down. They will fade to yellow, then near paper white before the snow flies.

About Today’s Photo:

I was helping out on the Camel’s Hump Nordic trail crew yesterday morning. We were working on a new trail up at around 1500′ and many of the maples had already dropped their leaves. The beeches, however, were in fine fall form with their leaves shifting through lime green, to gold, to russet.

The fall colors are peaking here in Huntington. Driving over Taft Hill, I just had to stop and take a few shots of some of the Taft’s heifers hanging out in the hillside meadow. I think they might be enjoying the color as much as I do!

About Today’s Photo:

Great egrets are a familiar site along coastal waters. There were several gangs of them hanging out in trees along the water as we kayaked in Little Pleasant Bay near Chatham, MA on Cape Cod. These birds were hunted to near extinction for their plumes in the 19th century (ladies gotta decorate their hats…), but conservation efforts have made for a robust return.
