Day 1 of Fall Colors.

The peak time for fall colors in my area is still only like 10% or so, but that doesn't mean that some trees haven't turned yet!  I don't know much about plants, but I was sure surprised that some flowers are still in bloom.  I went about two blocks and discovered that by the school nearby, there is a little garden planted in there.  Now the yard for the school is open.  Families are always there on the playground and it's just a nice little area, kinda hidden, and quiet.  I don't really know if people can go there, but there's always folks there and I was one of them.  

I found a lot of beautiful things to photograph.  I wish I had a better and more professional camera besides my point-and-shoot digital, but I make due with what I have.  It's either a new camera or bird toys and of course, bird toys come first!  It's not like my camera is broken either.  I liked my old camera better, but it's no longer being sold.  It was my fault really.  I left it out and the birds broke the lens on it.  It can still take pictures as long as the sun isn't involved.  The Macro mode was a lot better on that one.  This one just isn't the same.  They were both Canon.

This was the hardest.  The bees were all over this purple beauty and there were a lot of them.  This bee was the most still.  And I am scared of bees too.

I love the contrast between the colors of the leaves and the blue sky.  

I just want to sweep this

Yay!  A butterfly with its' wings!  This was one happy creature.  I was watching it forever. 
This is from the other night from my window.  Of course the colors were much prettier in person!

I went photographing things again this morning.  It's amazing how much stuff I found on sidewalks.  Not only that, but bushes and plants I would never even think to look at, were beautiful, full of life, and had stuff on them, that I would have never noticed if I didn't stop to look.  I'll post up those photos either later on tomorrow or this week.  I can't wait to share those pictures and I like them more.
