I went back to check on the group of little bugs on the shed door after work today. They’re still there, and after counting insects in this photo, I found that there are now 32 instead of 33 in the group. They’re all shades of red/orange, so I think the gray bug is the one that’s gone. They seem to be forming the letter L now.


Trumpet flowers up over the top of the fence.


A seed pod bursting open.


And the top of a palm tree against the gray sky. There are lots of berries visible on the tree, which will attract robins, Cedar Waxwings, warblers, and other birds later on.
