Poison Oak

Posted by

Already (and this was taken on August 30) the poison oak is turning orange. Looks like we are in for an early fall.

YESTERDAY'S COMMENT - After being properly chastised, I went back and made yesterday's comment gender neutral. :))

SCOTT F. SCHILLING from San Martin, United States

This makes me itch, but the color is wonderful and so vibrant! Great composition on this - the red really stands out against the greens! Make sure you don't get any closer!

@SCOTT F. SCHILLING: It's actually much easier to avoid when it's orange like this. Thanks for your kind comments.

The seasons have a magnificent way to paint the earth. Beautiful colors and textures. I love the trees and their moss. Superb clarity.
About yesterdays spider, in my household I'm the one that has to track them down and put them outside while the other half jumps and screams. Same with snakes.

I don't know how you did it, but you have made the poison oak beautiful!!!
I do love all the colors it turns, but I stay far away! (Bad fort-building experience as a child!)

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Poison oak and poison ivy - how can such nasty plants look so pretty in the fall. (I stay away from it, but sometimes my cats must go play in the stuff in the woods behind our house, and pass it along to me!) I'm itching just looking at this shot, but the colors are beautiful. ;-)

My last encounter with that stuff left me in the hospital for nine days!!! They said it will kill me if I get it again! Therefore, I can't say anything nice about you shot no matter how good it really is!!! :0)
