A closeup of a dewy blackberry leaf:

I went out looking for dewy insects early one morning last month, and didn’t find one. There were lots of  beautiful leaves though.

We’ve had our first snow and frost, the leaves are changing, but grasses and hardy plants like blackberry are still pretty green. As it got cold, insects have become hard to find. Last week, it seemed like the insect season was over. This week, it’s warmed up and there are bugs everywhere. One pond and meadow I visit was empty and silent last week, and today there were dozens of grasshoppers underfoot, a few spreadwing damselflies and skimmer dragonflies, and a single cabbage white. For flowers, there are mainly asters left.
