Back to Normal

Yesterday (actually late last night) we had the lunar eclipse to concentrate on. Today my photography operations returned to normal nature images. I’ll begin with a different type of composition of Virginia Creeper. Often I photograph the red leaves at the end of the growing season. Today I pointed my lens at vibrant, green Virginia Creeper with a hint of transition in the background.

The snakes are moving around, probably preparing for a long rest. I photographed this young fox snake as it crossed the road near Sweet Marsh. When I approached, it struck at me many times, connecting only with my boot. Fox snakes are non-venomous, so there was no real threat.

(The following were photographed yesterday.) At home we have robins and Cedar waxwings feeding on berries from our European mountain ash tree. The tree is quite messy, but the show the birds put on every autumn is worth it.
