I had a few minutes before I had to be an an appointment so I thought I would make a quick stop at a local waterfall to, hopefully, catch a beautiful fall scene. Well, the waterfall didn’t have much water falling; barely a trickle. Even if it were flowing, there wasn’t much color in the foliage surrounding it. However, there was a small patch of sumac in the area that was bursting with color. Normally the sumac turns a bright red. I’ve not encountered sumac in transition with such a wide range of colors before. It made my stop worthwhile.

It’s autumn in Wisconsin and the leaves have turned brilliant colors. In this area, one of the most transformations is the wild sumac plant – turning from green to orange and then a deep red.
This is the tip of a wild sumac branch being illuminated by the morning sun. The photo doesn’t do it justice.
