When it comes to fall color,the Ginko tree is hard to beat. One thing I have come to realize about the Ginko is that if you see it in full color, shoot it immediately or you might miss it. Case in point was one of these trees I saw almost at peak color on a friday evening and by monday morning every leaf was down on the ground.It has some sort of crazy mechanism that signals every leaf to drop at the same time, unlike every other tree I know of.This shot shows the freshly fallen Ginko leaves at a park.The leaves are a fan-like shape and vary from leaf to leaf.
There are several Herons that live at Longs Park all year round. They are so used to people that you can get ridiculously close. Have you ever shot them?
funny you say that. while i was shooting this image,a heron wandered about twenty feet from me,and yes i will post that soon. i was pretty excited he was so tolerant.
Great pictures and education , all at the same time– I never knew we had Ginkoes in this area! Thanks…
I love them too. Happy 🦃Day!
