Almost Fall Signs the that summer is slowly
giving way to autumn
fallen birch leaf changing to fall colors acorn on forest floor -start of harvest for woodland creatures mushrooms emerging
by Michael Chanteur
Late summer gives us a hint
Of the color that is to come.
It shows up s a red or orange leaf
Here and there.
Asters starting to bloom
And summer flowers fading.
Despite a persistent daisy or two,
The signs are very clear.
Under a Rock - below are some creatures I found on my
property in central Pennsylvania lifting up rocks.
garter snake(Thamnophis sirtalis ) ring-necked snake(Diadophis punctatus) small, but actually slightly venomous brown snake (Storeria dekayi)
wolf spider with egg case ants with eggs
ants with cocoons queen ants( black with wings-compare to brown worker on left)
a feral kitten a feral cat
