Just a little caterpillar making their way through the grass on dewy fall morning. Enjoy the journey and have a great day.
The October clouds just seem to move faster, get bigger and always seem just a bit darker. A time between the bluebird skies of summer and the socked-in days of winter. A little of each yet nothing like either.
October clouds reflected in the Lamar Valley.
Happy Friday and a good weekend to all.
Working hard from spring through summer the plants have done their thing. Now all that hard work is proudly on display.
The Choke Cherries have ripened and will provide food for bears and birds and even a human or two.
The Oregon Grape has produced berries of purple-blue that will help feed the grouse and pheasants as well as waxwings.
The wild rose has a a tough go of it as these bushes are a favorite food of deer. These Rose Hips were hanging high on the only branch not trimmed low to the ground by a local family of deer. A mother Mule Deer and her two fawns can really make quick work of a rose bush.
The snowberry bushes are numerous and cover the forest understory. This year they have done well and the berries will provide food for songbirds, game birds and many small mammals as winter rolls into town.
The plants have been busy and the fruits of their labor show.
Dramatic skies contrast with gentle golden grasses whispering change is on the way.
Grass browning, trees growing and clouds floating by as another season begins. Just a small slice of a big pie an infinite to be enjoyed.
