This time of year, even though I have numerous shots of goldenrod, ironweed and all the other usual suspects of early fall, I am drawn to the final hurrah of living things in a rush to leave behind seeds, spores and next year’s infant insects.
These milkweed beetles are some of the showiest, sporting the red warning colorations that says to a would-be predator: “You’ll be SORRY!”
So. You were also warned. More bugs and buds coming.
