MORE AUTUMN WALKING

I love to walk in the fall. It is not too hot, as the summer sometimes can be. If it is cold, being in the sun while moving usually seems to be comfortable. There are a lot of changes that take place in the fall and much to see. Tree leaves change color and then eventually fall off. Grasses become brittle and golden. Hibernating animals such as squirrels, chipmunks and bears feast on fruits, nuts and seeds to build up reserves of fat that will keep them warm during their long winter nap. Bees hibernate in their nests and wasps die off except for the queen. Birds and monarch butterflies fly south to warmer temperatures. As the seasons are transitioning from fall to winter, I try to be outside as much as possible before the inevitable snow and cold comes. Here are some things I saw on this fall day.
