October

Hello and Happy Sunday to you ...

The prompt this week at Our Beautiful World is simply October



October has come on tippy toes here in my part of the UK ... probably because we had a late summer ... we are having a late Autumn too ... but the splendour is certainly beginning and it all starts with one leaf ... 


... which in a matter of days became a blaze of red and golds


... and when the sunlight hits - it's glorious!


Once the leaves of this ivy fall ... there will be no trace that it was ever there ... until next Spring

Strangely enough the Lobelia is still in full flower


... and this next shot I took on my phone ... it's a local park and you can see just how lush it still is but with a hint of fallen leaves and some trees turning colour in the background


But my final photos are of a little bug I found outside ... and if he isn't dressed for Autumn - well I don't know what is!


I've no idea what he is ... but he is well camouflaged!


... Kinda looks like he should be on the X Factor

I'm really enjoying seeing all the photos you lovely bloggers are sharing with us at
Can't wait to see your October shots this week 

Have a beautiful Sunday

Beautiful photos, Ros. It is finally cooling down here as well. I saw several trees yesterday, their leaves were stunning. :)

Glorious colors!. Amazing how fast the color changes, do you get much snow in autumn, Ros?. Or only frost and rain?. That handsome bug is sure is dressed nicely :). Cool photos!!. Hugs.

Barbara said...

Such beautiful fall pictures, Ros... And that little bug really is quite something! I wonder whether they change colors throughout the year.

Beautiful fall photos, my friend... gorgeous leaves and that bug is truly amazing!

Zue said...

He is a shield bug!
There are lots of different ones. He looks just like a weapon of self defence in a battle. Doesn't he?

There are lots of them here, at various times of the year.
I once found one in a bag of ready to eat salad. Surprise, surprise!

Hello! I love seeing fall where you live, gorgeous! All those red leaves make me happy and that park is so pretty. What a well dressed bug that is, maybe he comes in the fall.
