20170902 Misty days of fall are starting

Dropping temperatures overnight are condensing the water vapour in wet air to give us morning mists and fogs.  Here are some examples…  (Click on the images to see them up close.)

Highway 607A on the way to Yesterday’s Resort …

Looking South from the Hwy 607 bridge over the Murdock River….

New pond at French River Bridge is stressing some of the trees, indicated by some premature fall colours….

Queen Anne’s Lace Blossom in the morning dew …

Water droplets have condensed on the spent blossoms of this Queen Anne’s Lace …

In a day or two the above flowerhead will retract into this ball for the seeds to mature …

Necklaces of dewdrops  …

It is always surprising to see the huge number and variety of cobwebs when looking up-sun on a foggy morning…

Last of the summer Ox Eye Daisys …

Last blossom on a Viper’s Bugloss..

 

Painted Ladies are still nectaring on the asters…

Probably a White-faced Meadowhawk or kin …

Andrew sent me this one a few days ago:  http://epod.usra.edu/blog/2017/09/storm-cell-over-polvadera-new-mexico.html
