Autumn is the time when the trees delight us with their colours.  The Sycamore avenue is lined with leaves of orange, yellow and brown.

Leaves along the Sycamore avenue 

It is not the season we associate with insects.  However today, there were several to be seen, favouring the man-made structures.  A small brown fly, covered with hairs, was found inside a tree tube.  A spider was sheltering in another.  Along the rails of the boardwalk were small flies, a sawfly larva and this tiny shieldbug instar.
