Glimpses of red in Discovery Park

Fall in the lowland Pacific Northwest tends to have low-key palette of greens, yellows and browns, but once in a while, reds emerge.


Trailing blackberry.

Vine maple, which tends to turn yellow in shady spots.

And finally, a true sign of fall, the ruby red eyes of western grebes, back in Puget Sound for the winter. I saw eight off Discovery Park's north beach.
