Dewy Dandelion

There just are not many flowers left in our area. I had to settle for photographing this simple dandelion for my friday flower photo. But it is still beautiful in it's simplicity if you ask me!

Dewy Webs

The weather has turned, and there is more precipitation in our forecast. I took a walk through the woods as I normally try to do on Sundays, and saw a lot of these low lying cobwebs nestled in between the early fallen leaves. They all had caught the mist in the air in their strands, which sparkled like little jewels.

This past week, we hit the juncture between summer and autumn. The weather turned, and moisture has filled our warm air. The hot sunny days are unfortunately probably a thing of the past, and with the cooler nights, the leaves have already started to change. This is what the trail I walked along on Sunday looked like. The only sounds were of the leaves falling through the woods around us, and the squish of the damp, leaf covered ground beneath our steps.

Albino Wooly Caterpiller?

It is wooly bear caterpiller season around here. The black and orange versions are said to be able to predict the winter that you will have (the larger the middle orange section, the more mild the winter you should expect). I have seen a couple of orange and black ones this past month or so, but have never in my life seen an entirely white version. I had to look them up online and the white is supposed to indicate a lot of snow. Yikes!
