Middle Autumn

Friday, November 17th 2017

As autumn progresses into middle autumn, so more leaves fall, opening up views that have been hidden during the summer.  Ferns, like most plants need water, light, soil and nutrients.  This one must be getting all it requires somehow, judging by the length of its fronds.

Marker posts do not make the best of backgrounds for anything to be photographed against but when you see a harvestman with such long legs resting on one, the appeal is just too great.
