the sky was full of wings. . .

 
 
Laura Ingalls Wilder's observation of Midwest autumn beauty is a perfect frame for these sky shots I took this morning walking a wooded path, looking for deer again [visit yesterday's post]. Of course they had already eaten their fill and were napping somewhere else.
 
It seems the leaves have turned over night in our area or maybe it is that those that did are so vibrant against our clear blue autumn skies.The deer live among the red trees you see in the distance, below.

 
A contrast with the showy reds are the more shaded trees near the lake and their deliciously sherbet colored leaves. You'd tell me if I've  photographed poison ivy, wouldn't you?
See more world-wide skies at Skywatch Friday.

Beautiful! I can just feel the warm sun and cool, crisp air! I think of all the Autumn colors, scarlet is my favorite, so I really love that second photo.

I'm awful at identifying poison ivy (I'm immune to it, so never felt motivated enough to learn it well!), so I'm useless. :-)
