Lens-Artists Photo Challenge # 106: Autumn

This week, Patti leads the Autumn theme.

A wind has blown the rain away and

blown the sky away and

all the leaves away and

the trees stand.

I think, I too, have known autumn too long.

E. E. Cummings

The landscape of the Georgia O’Keeffe Country and the Bandelier National Monument is amazing, especially in the fall when Cottonwoods turn into golden fall color.   

In Texas, leaves don’t turn into orange or red like in northern states during the fall. But, Monarchs enter the Texas portion of this flyway at the end of September. By the third week of October, most have passed through into Mexico.

According to the research report ifrom Texas A&M (March 2020), Monarchs were about 141.5 million, compared to 300 million a year ago.

Milkweed is essential food supply for monarch caterpillars. Monarchs overwinter and mate as they head north out of Mexico and into Texas, and then have three more generations as they travel to Canada.

  1. That is one of my all-time favorite quotes from ee cummings. Your photos are all great, I like the lined up Monarchs best. It was fun that you added facts about them as well. I enjoy it when they pass through our part of the states. The Milkweeds haven’t opened up yet, but the bee balm is in full bloom, so maybe they’re here and I just haven’t seen them yet. Thank you for sharing your view of the fall!
