We headed out for the last photowalk of the summer the other night.
I was really hoping to capture some leaf images, and was actually a wee disappointed that so few leaves were to be found, however...
the ladybugs were everywhere!
I hadn't seen any in so long and had thought they were gone.
We also saw a grasshopper...I didn't detain him too long as I know time is short and he needs to finish preparing for winter.
I even saw another one of these little green beetles.
It's like everyone came out to party that last night of summer.
This weekend is the last fiber festival of the year in my neck of the woods. Oregon Flock and Fiber is my favorite fiber festival--it's autumn, the drive out is short and nice, it's autumn, there're farms to visit along the way (I have a hankering for finding some pumpkins), and most importantly I'll get see and catch up with a lot of my fiber friends! Did you notice, shopping and fiber weren't even on the list!?
What are you up to this weekend? I hope you have a grand time! xo
For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
