November 2013
An Overview
Dec. 1, 2013

November certainly seems to have whizzed by, but then time tends to move fast for me when I have multiple freelancing assignments. On the brighter side, I managed to get outside now and again. While I've fallen behind in web page writing, I thought to present November as a month experienced.

The beginning of November had many trees in bright colors.

  On the ground, leaves were a good platform for dewdrops.
  The full moon (occurring in mid-November this year) is known as the hunter's moon.

  By the end of November, it turned quite cold with a persistent inch of snow on the ground, perhaps catching this chipmunk unawares (because, by the end of the month, he should be in his semi-hibernation).

  After the snow came freezing rain. The snow melted away leaving interesting shapes, such as what I call an ice dragon.

  Apart from local area walks, I also spent some quality time at Jo Hays Vista for the hawk migration.

Photo note: I used a Pentax K20D, with a variety of lenses, in State College, Pennsylvania, for these photos.
