November can be such a wonderful month here: lovely sunny days and beautiful autumnal colours. Well, this year the strange October storms have made this a short and far from spectacular autumn. Still, I love the sharp light in the early morning and just before sunset. And there remain just a few golden trees (I missed the best when in hospital).
Even the insects seem a bit confused about what season we are having. Here is a huge Red Admiral which could not decide whether to hibernate or fight the window panes to get out.
