The Change, It Has Begun. A Late Summer Hike With My Macro Lens.

I headed back out to Community Park on another beautiful late Summer afternoon in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Still no bald eagle sighting but an enjoyable hike with my macro lens. macro-hike-18

There aren’t many flowers blooming this time of year but i found a few, including this one I have never seen before. macro-hike-1

And, without an abundance of flowers in bloom there are a lot fewer insects flying about. But I did manage to see, and photograph a few. macro-hike-2

I was surprised to see a couple of dragonflies still darting about, and you can see from the way this critter’s wings have deteriorated,  that they won’t be flying much longer. macro-hike-19

And like the dragonflies, the leaves are also showing signs of deterioration , and are beginning to show their Fall colors. macro-hike-9

It won’t be long now until all of the leaves join in the annual display of color.  macro-hike-10

The ducks and geese were still on the water and I came across a few feathers they have left on the shores of the lake. macro-hike-28

It was a pleasant evening but ended a lot earlier than it does at the beginning of Summer as we continue to lose a few minutes of daylight every evening and morning. We still have one week of Summer left and I am going to enjoy every last minute of it. Here is a link to some more photographs from my hike tonight.
