It feel to the ground in a slow flutter, and then was picked up time and time again by the wind until it finally settled right by my foot.
This is exactly how I found this still life. It appears that I arrived right after the squirrels had brunch.
This is a little blurry as the wind was having a good time with it. Large leaf, that was like some sail on a boat. I looked closer at it and found that sail to be full of holes.
Moss has always been a wonder to me. Especially when I find it growing on a huge boulder like this.
There were quite a few of these crackling underneath my feet.
I just liked this.
Autumn color. Love it.
Oak leaves that caught my eye.
Thistles always catch my eye. These were as tall as I am, and that's saying a lot as I am over six foot. For a long time, I always thought of thistles as being these prickly things that made running barefoot as a kid a pain. Mowed them off in the yard. But when left to grow? Stunning. In all stages of life.
I have been taking a lot of inspiration from nature lately-- even more than I normally do!
This month of "rewilding" has been good, and something I intend to continue with even after September has expired.
