It's strange to see autumn so late, but I could get into the blue skies and warm weather.

Beautiful shots! I love going to Reid park when I'm in Tucson visiting my brother. Love our fall colors even if they don't get here until January. :)

The juvenile heron looks like an eagle with a fierce look.

Gaelyn said...

That sure looks like a nice autumn day. Blue skies here too and I think made it to 50 today.

I love the fall color on the pisache. These must leaf out again as soon as they drop last years leaves.
One of those runners looks a bit like one or my nephews.

Martha, you are very observant and correct!

Stephanie said...

Oh the sky is beautiful! I wish we can have this kind of blue sky soon. It has been really cloudy this week. Oh those red leafed trees... they are pretty! Your photos tell me that you really enjoyed the day ;-)

Beautiful autumn colours! I like the close-up of the heron and your header is pretty!

Mark Kreider said...

Incredible bird photos! It's so nice to see that someone does not have piles and piles of snow and that leaves are colorful and still on trees.

Genie said...

It is hard for me to believe anywhere could be this beautiful as I am sitting here cold as ice with snow and ice around me...and 3 days at home from school. The colors are gorgeous. What a great post for the end of January. It lets us all know there is life after snow!

Prospero said...

I like the autumn colors... I like them even better in January (one needs to be flexible about these things)

Thérèse said...

Very beautiful reds and golds, especially against that intense blue sky. =) Nice image of the heron, too.
