Nothing particularly profound today. I thought I would just share a smattering of pictures of critters that can be found on most any given early fall day around our home near Akron OH.
The last couple of days there have been thousands of ladybugs swarming around the backyard looking for a place to overwinter.
I am always amazed by the ability of these moths to blend into their environment. Just look how this moth fits the texture and tones of the sandstone on which it is sitting. We have a darker brick exterior on the front of the house but these moths always find their way to the rim of light sandstone blocks that go around the front door. I assume they do this while it is still dark or at least not completely light yet which makes it all the more amazing.
I posted a whole series of pictures, including this one, of the gnat swarms in my back ground earlier (NH Photography: Gnats swarming above grass).
