Little helicopters

OK, one more photo from last Sunday, and then I promise I’ll get back to working on pics from the Caribbean…

The fall colors have really been lovely this year, and so far there hasn’t been quite enough rain to turn everything to mush yet.

Usually by the time I see these little helicopter-y maple seed pods spiraling their way to the ground, they’ve already lost their color and have turned a nondescript shade of light brown.  I guess when they’re red like this it’s easy to hide among the leaves.  I really had never noticed them while they’re still in the trees before.  Or maybe it was a particularly good year for maple seeds?
