There are a few repeat photos in this blog, but since the last few years’ worth of photos were deleted I’m reposting the photos.
It’s a busy time of year full of dance practice until 9 and homework until 11. It’s dark by dinner and cold enough for snow. My fingers are so cold they no longer react with the touch screen on my phone.
I was caught in the dark running in the woods the other day. I don’t have time for these shorter days.
I made it out of the woods despite the leaf-covered trail.
There were lots of noises as critters ran through dried leaves. I was a little scared I was going to accidentally startle a skunk and get sprayed and less afraid I was going to get stalked and eaten by a mountain lion. It was great to hear the stream since that meant I was close to the trailhead.
Here’s the same video essentially, but taken during the day.
…compared to a spider.
A Banded Argiope missing a hind leg. The grasshopper with the missing leg is still hanging out in the front garden too. They are harmless like most spiders and are capable of consuming insects up to twice their size.
More webs highlighted by fog.
A roller coaster of web…
Last day at Cannonsburg State Game Area….
Nick Jr.’s famously over-played I think I'm fallin' for Fall jingle. I haven’t heard it for years, but it’s still stuck in my brain.
