So it looks like summer is well and truly over. October arrived with northerly winds and Summer 2008 waved goodbye and got on the next plane to Florida. Depressed? At least we had a couple of weeks of sunshine and the insects managed to have a final feed.
Feeding Queen Bombus Terrestris – Buff -tailed Bumblebee
This isn’t going to be a long rambling post cos I’m trying to cheer myself up with some “sunny” photos and convince myself that Autumn is full of fascinating wild things.
Repeat after me “fungi is fun, fungi is fun!”. No really it is!
Russula rosea – The Rosy Brittlegill
Coprinopsis atramentaria – Common Ink Cap
Leccinum scabrum – Brown Birch Bolete
The final word has got to come from my beautiful Queen Bumblebee. Facial hair is going to be all the rage next year – take my word for it!
