Lens-Artists Photo Challenge # 106: Autumn

Autumn is Ohio’s best season: the colors, the weather, the events!  Even a car ride is a joy, but I really love visiting state parks at this time.  Here are some views from Mohican State Park near the northeast part of the state.

I love identifying leaves in the fall (the tree in the featured image is a sassafras, which have some of the most beautiful colors).  Here are some posts to get you started with some basic leaf IDs:

How to Recognise Different Types of Trees From Quite a Short Way Away (Fall leaf ID part 2)

Another fun feature of Ohio is that you never know whether it might rain or even snow on Halloween. Plan your costumes accordingly! 🤣

 

You can find more autumn at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

    Autumn fun! What is this going to develop to – the lovely caterpillar?

      I think it’s a banded tussock moth caterpillar, so he’ll become a fairly ordinary-looking moth. Much less dramatic!

    Hi, Mei-Mei. I love the sassafras tree/leaves. Beautiful. And thanks for the links. I’m always wondering about the names of the trees!
