Caught In A Web

This leave did not make it to the ground. I guess some spider or maybe a couple of them have been busy.

I hope to get out a few times this week and make at least one video of the colors. The leaves are starting to really change and put on their fall colors. We will see.

Hey, I Was Here First

I captured this photo while Teresa and I were hiking near the Stillwater River this week. It is not the first time we have seen mulitple insects on the same plant, but it is always intersting.

Nature is full of surprises. Every hike brings new and special experiences. Some can be captured in a photo. Life is good.

Splish Splash, I Was Taking A Bath

Remember this one:

Splish splash, I was taking a bath,
Long about a Saturday night.
A rub dub, just relaxing in the tub,
Thinking everything was alright.
Well, I stepped out the tub, put my feet on the floor,
I wrapped the towel around me,
And I opened the door, and then,
Splish, splash! I jumped back in the bath

Teresa shot the 1st photo, and I took the second one. The sun was not in a good spot for that second photo, so it is not great, but you get the idea. Enjoy the weekend.

What If …

Teresa and I hiked at Stillwater Prairie Reserve this week. I shot these photos with my drone. As you can see, especially in the second photo, we are starting to see some color. Its still late this year. I have noticed the walnut trees have lost their leaves, but most of the trees are still green.

On a different topic: I am not trying to make a political statement with this story. Clearly, by the number there has been a decline in some bird species. This is a sad read: Climate change threatens hundreds of North American bird species with extinction, study says.

So, what do the photos have to do with this issue? The migration is almost complete. I saw a few birds, but mostly of the non-migratory variety. It was so quiet. It made me think, what if it was like this year around .. and the birds of summer were not around. That would be sad.

A Little Sulfur

Teresa shot this photo of this Sulfur butterfly. We have seen so many of these this year. This one was is still hanging around as the fall has arrived. They don’t usually land for very long, but he didn’t fly away. Beautiful creature.
