Another beautiful day here. The colors in "my kingdom" (we don't own all the land I roam and enjoy) are getting quite intense. This picture doesn't quite do this view justice. I think it's too far away to show well in a picture. But I sort of judge how good the fall colors are coming along by the looks of that cemetery edge. It has various oranges and yellow, and the lower staghorn sumacs in front are red.
We also have a patch of winged (or shining) sumac. I did a previous post on several kinds of sumac. They all tend to turn red, but this one starts out dark red and then peaks at a pure, bright scarlet.
Here is the mulberry tree that features prominently in the summer too. It wears gold!
Finally, even though this is fuzzy, I'm really happy to have caught this picture. This is the red-tailed hawk. I heard it cry (it says "keeeeer"), and just managed to catch it flying to a clump of aspen.
I also tried something new today, that is amazing! I blogged about it at Grazing the Ditches
