Spiders, Insects And Other Late Summer Cool Stuff

Sunny skies and unseasonably warm temperatures are not good for the wild mushrooms but have made for some pleasant hiking conditions. I took advantage of them with a few hikes with my macro lens.
The ragweed, a nuisance to many, is a major sources of late season pollen for many species of bees,
There were still a few moth and butterflies fluttering about too, and they also were attracted to the common ragweed.
and I believe these are the beautiful, but deadly destroying angel mushrooms.
And, with the invention of the internet and social media, I am so glad I can share my discoveries with so many people here on my blog. Here is a link to some more photographs from my hikes this week. Macro photographs.
