Trees and a Squirrel
We got some glorious autumn days right now, and since the way to my job place goes through part of the Forest Botanical Garden, I decided to bring my camera yesterday.
My way to work (well, after I got off a 35 min bus ride)
There's a little pond, too, which looks lovely right now.

I turned to take another shot.

When something threw something at me. And I could hear a crunching sound.
What's hiding there?
I looked up into the tree. It was camouflaged well, brownish against brown branches and yellow leaves, and against the low autumn sun.
A red squirrel, eating some nut or seed. Audibly so.
Red squirrels are pretty common in Germany (we don't get the grey variant), and in the park they are not shy; they sometimes squirrel across the way right in front of you.

More pretty trees
I took some more photos of trees before I had to catch the bus home. If the weather holds, I should walk the other ways in the park with my camera, too.
