Four weeks ago, I did a Thursday Tree Love post showing some little bits of autumn color peeking out in the woods behind our house. Two weeks ago there wasn’t enough of a color difference to warrant revisiting the woods, so I did a throwback post instead. For this edition, not only did I get some Fall foliage color to share, I also got video of a haunted leaf in the forest!
But before I get started, a quick shout out to my WordPress blogging friend Parul to say thank you for hosting this awesome blog hop every couple of weeks. If you want to join in the Tree love blog hop fun, it’s wicked easy – here’s the description from her latest post today, called #ThursdayTreeLove – 116:
Thursday Tree love is a photo feature hosted on this blog on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of a month. The next edition will go live on October 28, 2021. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog, tell me where did you spot the tree and link it back to this post.
If you don’t see the pingback, please leave a link to your post in my comments section. Please make sure that your post’s link is showing up on this latest edition. I will link your posts on my blog in the next edition and spread some love. Let’s come together to appreciate the beautiful nature around us.
As for these photos, as per my usual FYI – these were taken in the woods next to my Durham, NH home with my Nikon, sometimes using my tripod. All were resized, then cleaned up a bit with PicMonkey – mostly the exposure and sharpness, but with a few other tweaks like vignette filters for the corners here and there.
Now on with the photos…
Fall foliage and a haunted leaf
As for that haunted leaf I mentioned in the title – as I was walking through the woods (round about picture #13), the breeze picked up and along with lots of leaves and pine needles raining down on me, I noticed a leaf near the ground that seemed to be defying gravity. I recorded a video just over a minute long & thought it was kind of cool, how it was floating through the air as if by magic. Then when I watched it on my computer, I realized someone had hitched a ride on it!
Did you spot the little spider scurrying around under the fold of the leaf near the one minute mark? If I’d noticed him while I was filming, I would’ve recorded longer. And given how much the wind was whipping that leaf around, I get the feeling the poor little guy is still dizzy!
Hope you enjoyed my photos of fall foliage and my video of a haunted leaf. Happy Thursday Tree Love everyone!
