I know, I know, awful 'instamatic' picture quality...and yet I'm entering a few pixs just for fun!

I like it when the wild turkeys visit from time to time, I think I counted about a dozen in this flock.Photo of the month contest October 2014-100_2212.jpg

At the same crossing in my driveway, the deer go thru here often.Photo of the month contest October 2014-100_2213.jpg

I found this 'hairy bugger', and he was kina big! Nearly 2" across...probably!....LOL I wasn't going to measure him with a ruler.Photo of the month contest October 2014-100_2219.jpg

Found this monarch cat on my Sullivant's milkweed yesterday. Cat was 5th instar but not full size. Hopefully, it is the last of the year because it is getting awfully late in the year.

Glad you found a Monarch cat KC. Did you have many of them this summer?

It was a very good year. I have yet to tally my notes to see how many I raised. I gave quite a few away since I did not have time to be raising all of them. And then even more raised themselves. Before this year, I had seen 3 monarch chrysalises on milkweeds during my life time. This year, my son and I found at least 6 in my front yard. And in a first, my butterfly weed had monarch cats eating it. I had never seen that before. Also found eggs on it. A very good year.

Fall color shots from October 2012. We haven't had much color this year.

Love the fallen leaves Rebeck. Makes me want to do a shuffle-sprint right through them.

Your so funny havalotta, keep those one-liners going ~~~I love 'em.

And you hit the nail on the head, one thing I don't like wrestling is with hairy spiders. But it's Ok if he lives under the house, and not in the house!
