We were actually heading for one place, but the pond we were trying to get to was accessible only by a private road. Residents only. Rich people territory. This is where we ended up. The only problem is, I’m not sure where we were other than “somewhere in Sutton.”

There were ducks and geese on the pond, as well as a couple of beaver. Kaity got a shot of the beaver, but I was too slow. For all that, it was a good afternoon shoot.

This is the end of autumn, just before it becomes winter in the valley.

    1. I felt lucky to get a few good pictures of them. They used to be common, but are no long easy to find. They need a lot of sun and the oak trees have grown very large and block much — most — of the sun where the birches grew. We have none left in our own woods and there are few elsewhere.

  1. I must say these are AMAZING pics. I loved the autumn feel here. Truly gorgeous. One thing I wanted to ask you how did you manage these snow flakes on your lovely blog? Is it part of the new themes at woedpress or customize magic?


    1. On your dashboard, under Settings–>General–> on the very bottom (last line) of the menu, there’s a checkbox “Snow falling snow on my blog until January 4th.” Check the box! Snow will fall on your site too!
