The leaves are close to their peak color now. However before the bit of warm weather, we had several rainy and windy days. Unfortunately, that brought down a lot of leaves, so the views aren't quite as spectacular as they might have been. But they are pretty all the same.
Here's what I saw this week
during a Second Look.
|Cucumber beetle. Unlike its ladybug look alike, this beetle can do a lot of damage to beneficial plants.|
|Ward saw these mating wheel bugs. He didn't stick around long enough to see if the female ate the male as she often does after mating.|
|I found two kinds of honeysuckle berries.|
|This maple tree has lost enough leaves that we can see the squirrel's nest in the top.|
