Summer is almost over in northern Virginia. The weather is getting pleasantly cool and the days are getting shorter. It's getting more difficult to find wildlife outdoors and fall colors are just beginning to appear. Below are some photos I've taken recently.
The first four were taken today with my digital camera. First, a fall rose.
Next, a fall lily.
Next, the mansion that once was occupied by the former owners of the land that now constitutes Green Spring Gardens Park. It is open for tours and tea.
The new gazebo that has been installed in Green Spring's pond area. I posted two black and white shots of this gazebo a week or two ago.
The following photos were taken with my film camera. I took the two butterfly shots last week. The duck in the middle is from a couple of weeks ago.
