Sunshine is so welcome after a few days of rain. Many leaves have fallen leaving some trees entirely bare.
Other trees tenaciously hang on to their leaves - their colours more intense in the afternoon sun.
The squirrels seemed to be having a party as about a dozen of them gathered in one area. Something delicious must have dropped from a nearby tree. Seeds? Crab apples? Whatever it was they were all indulging.
Long shadows come earlier each day. Daylight hours are noticeably shorter.
