Saying goodbye to November...

Late month paddle on the little river. Water temp. 40. air temp. 54. No wind. 

A day after I took this photo, we got 14 inches of snow. Could be the last chipmunk sighting until spring.

Milkweed pods and seeds. As a late autumn botanical still life, you can't do much better.

Male Downy Woodpecker on an Angelica stalk. I watched while it dug out a larva.

The lake from my kayak at sunset. It's still not frozen. I might get another chance in December to paddle.
