Macro Insects Continued

Two weeks ago I posted some snapshots of Butterflies and Bees. This is my second and last part of Macro Insects. I spent a lot of time in my garden this summer and captured many different bugs. Time passes unbelievably fast for me when I go on these adventures in my garden. There is so much there you don't see at first glance.

I feel like Autumn has really settled in since last week. Days are noticeably shorter, the air is colder and more crisp. The leaves have turned brown on some smaller deciduous trees and are beginning to fall. At the moment we have a hurricane headed our way from the North Atlantic. Thankfully it has weakened from Category 5 to 1. It has been a long time since we've had some drastic weather. Six years ago the winds picked our greenhouse up and threw it down the garden.

I always struggle to decide which season I prefer and that is because I love and appreciate all seasons. However, the phenological changes between summer and autumn are my favourite. There is something so beautiful and romantic about this particular transition. I hope I get to share more summery floral photographs before winter sets in for real. I have one last group of macro snapshots l want to post.
