Setting new temperature records, Michigan had six extremely hot days last week. Taking advantage of the lowering river flats, the various birds enjoyed snacking on the plentiful amount of fish and other water creatures.
Today, September 22, 2017, is the first day of the Autumn Equinox for us in the Northern Hemisphere. Right now in Michigan, the temperatures are over 90 degrees with added humidity for fun. Personally, the warmer weather does not inspire a fall like atmosphere.
Everyone keeps telling me to enjoy the warm week. But I remember my grandfather and others telling me that warmer fall days mean a harsh winter.
Rain is here in mid-Michigan. I cannot complain. Our mild rain showers are nothing in comparison with the destructive path of the hurricanes. My thoughts, positive vibes, prayers, and well-wishes go out to everyone and every animal affected by the hurricanes.
The pause in the rain showers brought a beautiful, bright rainbow. Snapping over 100 photos, I cannot believe the awesome beauty of a rainbow amidst the storm clouds.
I seem to have an abundance of grasshoppers this year. Ranging from bright yellow to a deep green, the little insects jump around as soon as I walk pass. Of course, I do have a lot of weeds right now. So I am certain they are enjoying eating the extra foliage.
Wondering around my yard this evening, I realized there are more dragonflies out than normal. I am assuming a new batch must have been hatched. Zooming a top of the flowers and other plants (mostly weeds in my yard), they were everywhere. Watching the little, winged creatures is always a highlight for me.
