Hello everyone! Ever since kcanadensis and I moved, we haven't been able to get outside quite as often... nevertheless, we've found some things, here and there.
Milkweed pods and milkweed bugs! I just love distributing the milkweed fluff on windy days.
Aeshna canadensis... darners aren't very common finds in autumn, so I feel lucky to have seen this guy. He was hanging out on a tree trunk, catching the late-afternoon October sun.
Lastly... a small bird nest. I think it belonged to a goldfinch... it was very daintily made, from thin grasses -- and lined with goatsbeard and/or milkweed fluff. Such a warm place to rear baby birds!
