“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own”. ~ Charles Dickens
This shot was taken in late November while on a walk in northern Minnesota. The beauty of autumn was over. The forest was primarily a drab palette of grays, browns, and dark green. I turned a corner to see this lovely sight. The red winterberries were a great compliment to the red feathers of this beautiful Pileated Woodpecker.
I heartily agree with Charles Dicken’s assessment of the seasons. Nature is so cool!
