This is one of my favorite images from the entire trip.  And, when the one professional photographer in the group says "that's a hanger," I figured I did OK.

My wife and I took a side trip to Mono County Park at the northwest "corner" of Mono Lake.  I wandered down to the viewing platform near the lake.  The platform is surrounded by reeds, which I photographed with the intent to create semi-abstracts.  I used a telephoto focused near the minimum to get these examples.  This one has a small wasp in the head of the reed.

And now a few backlit leaves from around Shaver Lake over Thanksgiving weekend.

My oldest granddaughter and I took a stroll before Thanksgiving dinner to hunt down the last remnants of fall color at 5,000+ feet.  The pickings were slim, but we found enough.
