~October 2011 Photo of the Month Contest~
 
~~~October 2011 photo contest is now open! Photos must be taken in October (any year) and the limit is four.

This month , dramatic changes in colors and textures surround us. In most areas, green trees and bushes at the beginning of the month may transform to bare branches by Halloween. Seed heads and twisted, dried forms of previously colorful plants offer challenging new photo opportunities.

(Cropping or minor tweaking is okay.)

I just really loved the color combinations in this photo. Isn't nature amazing?

After taking a lot of photos of quite a few different insects at my asters and goldenrod, I'm starting to really like fall! (Not looking forward to winter has often put a damper on my appreciation of this wonderful season in the past, but, hopefully, as our property is transformed into our own private nature preserve, I'll begin to enjoy each season in turn...but I still wish winter were shorter! ;))

Thanks, suunto...but after reading that Ailianthus (tree-of-heaven) is a host plant for it, I'm kind of depressed!

Gentianopsis crinita (Fringed Gentian) which is an extirpated native in my state, the place that the photo was taken was around Slatington, PA.
