Diane Hopp recently returned from a field trip deep into British Columbia’s Chilcotin region, to Chilko Lake and the grizzly bears.  What is a sure sign of Fall?  Salmon runs, and those who pluck tidbits from the nourishing stream.  The bears are loading up their fat stores, preparing for the oncoming winter.  Follow the link for more wonderful photos of these magnificent animals in their natural habitat.

Larry Citra has documented some of the major benefits of the arrival of Fall – morning mist, low-angled sun, and Nature’s increasing use of orange, yellow, red, and blue from her palette.

Sue Wolfe continues with the same theme, in her image of aspens and a gravel road, as in other recent images.

The birds are harvesting the plump Saskatoon berries, as Diane Sullivan shows, and the bears are out and about, harvesting as well.

As John Mortimer shows, the coats of the deer have changed from their Summer tan to a much more subdued shade which helps them better blend into the changing colour of the landscape.

And my contribution – pearls arranged on a gossamer network – found not locally, but near Kahlenberg in the hills to the north of Vienna, Austria.
