Not quite


Yes, being a northern hemispheran, autumn is encroaching here, which means the availability of subjects is waning rapidly and I’m going to be grumpy and irritable for a few months (not helped at all by sinuses that react badly to the conditions.) Yet, there are still some last holdouts defying the season, like an aster flower that abruptly came into bloom under the dog fennel that’s been my go-to for insect images lately.

Unfortunately, I misjudged the depth-of-field in the brief moment that I had this framing opportunity, and thus have to point out that the blob in the background is a skipper butterfly also taking advantage of this late bloomer – it just isn’t being communicated without my hint, is it? Ah well…

I have more stuff coming up, including at least another podcast, but right now there’s a cat sleeping on my microphone. And that’s a euphemism that you’re free to run with…
