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.
