The typical fall colors are red, yellow, orange and browns (more browns around the Pacific Northwest, I’m afraid). Once in a while there is a splash of color that is jarring. This image shows some pond scum (algae of some kind) at the Nisqually-Billy Frank Jr National Wildlife Refuge in one of the beaver dams. Quite dramatic.
It was a pretty cold morning with a brisk wind and this Great Blue Heron looked like he was really wanting to have some nice warm sun … which wasn’t to be.
