At first glance what is seen is past-its-prime dead weeds in front of the colorful fall foliage. Getting closer shows dried leaves and seed heads standing tall, contrasting with the still alive tree leaves. Still closer shows evidence that the “life cycle” progression of the season varies even on one the single stalk of one perennial. The closest image shows the intricate details of nature.

I am unsure of the exact species shown in these images; the location must be returned to next year during summer’s mid-season for better identification. Such is the fun of being an aspiring naturalist.
