Golden Glow Two, Marbled Orbweaver, My Left Foot, etc.

That golden glow, Part II. I think this week marked the peak of fall color here in Berkeley Springs. The leaves are still changing color, but they've also been dropping from the trees at a rapid rate.

Here is Lake Siri in the morning:

How about a Marbled Orbweaver? (P.S. I don't recall ever seeing the word "Hoarctic" before.)

Would you believe Muscovy ducks by Lake Siri nibbling on my left foot?

Suet & Orbs.

Hell, you should rename your blog that. That would be perfect: Suet & Orbs!

Amazing brilliance of the fall colors. The morning mist off the lake. And that spider. Man! I had no idea something like that actually existed.

I'm hearing "Suet and Orbs" as if it were sung by the Snowman in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Suet and orbs, suet and orbs... needs work.

I love that Red Bellied Woodpecker! There is a lot of power in that bill!

Still remarkable today too! I just posted my power post!

I'm envious of all your birds. It's usually a couple of months before our woodpeckers come back.
