I can't believe I am finding this violet in Novenber.
The hills in this area were once ocean reefs in the Pennsylvanian age.

I think a bird did a fast stop and start here.
Freshwater Clam shell
This looked like maybe a beaver took a tree down  to the water.

Ground Cherries

Participating in a photo hike at Neal Smith National Nature Preserve.
Wishing for more clouds as the sun slowly sets.


  1. That is a rare violet. The ones that grow near my house have died back for next spring. I love the water pictures. I am a waterbug at heart. Sunsets were a nice ending. Cheers mountain man.

  2. stalwart little violet. beautiful pictures but I'm surprised no snow.

  3. You have such a nice variety of fall pictures. Each is unique and represents the area so well.

  4. You showed some nice detail in the first photos.

  5. Treasures indeed! Thanks Steve...:)

  6. Beautiful photos, your Bluebird is so pretty:)

  7. Especially love the first and last pic.
    The bird threw on the skids:)

  8. Nature is confused for sure - I live in Florida and my pear tree is blooming in November; not supposed to happen until spring

  9. Love the shot of the photo walk. And those sunset shots! Amazing. No clouds required.


Keep it positive and informative,I enjoy hearing from you!
