Waving the Red Flag

Late in Autumn there’s a tree that lets you know the end is near. I don’t know what kind of tree it is, but I know that when it waves its deep red leaves, the time for Fall foliage is almost at an end. I like this picture because I felt like I was stalking the tree, photographing it from afar. It was like I didn’t want to get to close and scare away the fleeting moments of the season. It was signalling the end of another colorful time in the forest, and I stole a glimpse.
