Flowers, Spiders And Insects: A Walk With My Macro Lens.
The dry weather here in Northeastern Pennsylvania has certainly affected the growth of wild mushrooms. I haven’t been finding as many as other years. They thrive in wet and humid weather conditions However, I am still looking for them and usually take my camera and macro lens with me. This allows me to observe the flowers, insects, leaves and spiders that I encounter from a different perspective.
Last week I took a couple of walks and came across some late summer wild flowers and the insects they attract, A large patch of wild mint was a popular place for bees, wasps, yellow jackets and even flies.
Pokeweed berries are now ripe. Spring and Summer and the enchanting growth of plant life they produced are over. Nature will now enter the final stage of it’s annual growth. It will soon be entering it’s long Winter’s sleep. Hopefully not before we get some rain, and a late crop of edible wild mushrooms. Here is a link to some more photographs from my walk.
