It's a Bug's Life!!!
It's that time of the year folks. You know the one where the minute Fall starts arriving, thousands of little bugs are flying around?
There are so many, you can't even step outside without being surrounded by them. Tiny little specks in the air, flitting around the trees and the house.
I am not a bug person, they give me the heebie jeebies. *shudder*
But, even I can admit that it does look kinda cool, especially when they are showered in sunlight. I seem to notice them more when the sun starts setting, because then it literally looks like the sky is filled with them, flying back and forth between the trees and the house.
I want so bad to photograph them, but it's not easy to do. In the photo above you can see some of them,they are the tiny flickers of light right above the fence line and by the trees. It does make for some pretty photos doesn't it?
As annoying as they are, I still wouldn't change it for anything in this world, not when their arrival is on the heels of the beautiful change of seasons.
How gorgeous is the tree above? It is almost like it's bathed in gold, right?
Ladybugs are all over the place too, and I have found quite a few in my house already. I know these bugs are all looking for a warm place for winter, but if possible, I would rather they find a log or something outside and not share my space with me.
The ladybugs wouldn't be so bad, but the stink bugs is a big no no.
I am finding them hiding in my blinds, my living room curtains and climbing up the walls of the house outside. BLECH!!
So tell me, how is Fall coming along in your neck of the woods, do you also have the Fall bugs all around?
