Red Clover

Sunset is coming earlier these days, and the weather is getting very chilly.  This flower, a red clover, is one of the last survivors in our yard.  Its vibrant color against the green and brown background is still there despite frost.

Dandelion and Orange Insect

I like the dark background in contrast with the bright yellow of the dandelion.  When I was really little, I called the pretty weeds "dandy-flowers."  A few times, my family went into our yard and picked a gazillion of them, fried them, and ate them for supper (Sounds weird, but trust me, it's really good!).

The bug has a orange color that blends nicely with the yellow.  He walked around the small flower near the smaller insect with a silly air of "I'm huge, fear me."
