October's End/Nature Notes

End of October

It's definitely looking a LOT like November here, Ontario's most overcast month.  But so far, the weather has been fairly mild.

Largest block: cattail with matted fluff. I'm not sure why this is quite so matted as we haven't received much rain. Yep dull skies and little rain. Our rivers, lakes and marshes are still drier than usual.

Three smaller blocks from top to bottom: a toadstool growing in the crotch of a tree; female and  male mallard swimming in shallow water; and  bittersweet nightshade wilted by frost.

Beautiful shades of autumn. I hope the rains from Sandy help raise the water levels there. We don't need it but we're going to get some too.

Those picture do have an end of year feel to them - I hope mine have a start of the year feel!

These weeks are really "changing weeks" in the nature.
I hope your area do not get difficulties because of Sandy storm.
Thank you for your comment on my site!

The composition of the toadstool is perfect. I love seeing the changes in the seasons.

At least you are at the normal times unlike some of us who suffer a lot from nature's wrath. That mushroom looks so nice at that position, i see some arrogance in it yet shy! haha.

I love the background of the cattail! Not sure what it is about it, but it really appeals to me.
