Chipmunk dodges the rain
Celery Farm, 7:40 a.m. Tuesday

Celery Farm, 5:20 p.m. Monday


   The autumn foliage this year has been mostly a washout, but the fading golden afternoon light hitting the trees across from the Warden's watch gave the leaves a boost late Monday afternoon.

  When the sun is shining, I'll take that view and that time of day in autumn/winter at the Celery Farm anytime.


   In the distance on the water were six buffleheads, including males with white heads so bright they looked like mergansers. 

   For more on buffleheads, look here:

   This many buffleheads at the Celery Farm is an unusual treat.

   The reflected foliage gave a couple of them an almost painterly quality.
