October Beauty

The photos today were all taken October 21, the first four at Ouabache State Park and the last two on our way home that evening.

Common Buckeye Butterfly
I've admired other bloggers' photos of the Common Buckeye many times but had never seen one myself until this day. It made my day.

The photo above may look familiar. It's the same path pictured in my last post but taken 11 days later and showing a bit more fall color.

The picture above shows a little fall color across the "lake." The lake has begun to fill again, but slowly. Still, the Canada geese seem encouraged.

The photo above shows the sunset as we started home that night. The one below shows the same sunset in its dying glory.

    1. Your blog is where I've seen them, Steve. I might not have known to look for them if not for you. Enjoy the color while you can. Everything will soon be black and white.

    1. It's taken a little more effort than usual to find photo ops at the park this year, Petra. I was thrilled to get that shot of the butterfly.
