Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapilla).

 

 

October 17th. This Red Maple's last fall foliage...

 

 

...as it becomes food and building materials for Beavers.

 

 

October 18th. A foggy morning. The beavers have made progress towards felling the Red Maple.

 

 

Not much left of the trunk.

 

 

October 19th. Misty prelude to a rainy day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wet surfaces intensify the fall colors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

October 20th. The beavers spent a little more time working on the red maple...

 

 

...before switching focus to another maple further down the trail.

 

 

 

 

 

Colors intensified by last night's rain.

 

 

October 21st. Predawn long exposure.

 

 

The beavers finished felling the red maple last night.
