Highlights on leaves

Even where there are no insects or flowers to photograph, aren't those leaves beautiful enough to bring some interest to such a sad season as Winter?

Let's fill the void with a picture of the little lake they are playing onto ;-)

Grass battle

When you look closer to Nature and discover a whole underworld at a tiny level :-)
...This is why I so much love macro-like photography!

All is brown

Unfortunately, not all things remain colorful during Autumn...
Though I still can find some beauty in brownish-grayish colors, don't you think so too?

Leaves macro

Among all seasons, my favorites are Spring (obviously...) and Autumn ;-)

The first one, because of the numerous insects and flowers appearing during this period (so many opportunities to take pictures!).
And the second one, because of the beautiful colors displayed everywhere and the carpet of leaves being gathered after all trees start losing their green ornaments :-D
