It’s still a bit chilly and very quiet in the yard. Almost no birds around today–I didn’t even hear them calling–and it’s too cool for anoles to be out. However there was a squirrel on the fence. It froze in place when Sophie, Lulu, and I came out the door. I moved a little closer and took a photo, and then the squirrel scrambled up into a tree. Sophie and Lulu never even noticed.


Sophie had her back toward me, but she knew I was there with the camera.


The leaves on these branches were red at the top, orange and then yellow down along the branches, and green at the bottom.
