Fall Colors-Painting II-72Fall Reflections — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.

this time of year because most ground cover around it has dried up.

Beautiful blossoms and fruit
To often overlooked.

As seen in this image, American Snouts often perch on branches as if to imitate a dead leaf. This small, relatively dull colored butterfly got its named because of the pronounced elongation of its labial palpi into a prominent snout — the better with which to suck.
