Petals in the wind

Thought I would share a bit of observed "beauty":

Driving home from work, in our first windstorm of the season, taking care that one of the 50-ish mph gusts didn't push my low small car too close to any of the semis sharing the commute -

one gust hit a tree full of bright gold autumn foliage, predictably blowing a large quantity of them off the tree, laterally

it looked like a flock of canaries suddenly taking flight!

That is an image I hope to long remember.
