I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. ~ Leo F. Buscaglia
A Monarch caterpillar in September, destined one day to be a beautiful butterfly.
Each of these three spiky seed pods are about the size of a blueberry. The photo was taken in November.
Here's one up a bit closer.
A tiny purple wildflower leaning up against an orange construction fence back in September. I thought the contrasting colours looked pretty.
Various stages of decomposition among these Hawthorn berries in late November.
Neither the bee nor the flower are in focus but I still enjoyed seeing this unexpected departure from the bloom, back in September.
Also from September, two tiny orange mushrooms looking much like miniature bells.
Folklore says that these wooly bear caterpillars predict the severity of the upcoming winter by how long their fur grows. Wikipedia dispelled that for me.
Berries for the birds. They were already drying out in October.
This is not exactly in keeping with all of the other images from nature but I like the way the tiny grains of salt show up in the stream of sunlight on the restaurant table top.
More photos coming up soon.
