Escarpment black cherry

Escarpment Black cherry Tree Turning Yellow 9511

Before I stopped on November 26th to portray the bright oaks you saw last time, I’d spent a couple of hours at Doeskin Ranch, a nature preserve in Burnet County about an hour from my home in northwest Austin. At the preserve I photographed lots of things, including some colorful escarpment black cherry trees, Prunus serotina var. eximia, a species making its debut here today. The large trunk at the right is a live oak, and the red leaves beyond the dead tree to the left belong to another kind of oak, probably the same as what you saw last time.
