Summertime Sampler

September is the first month of meteorological fall and, with leaves beginning to change color and birds beginning to migrate, it's obviously now also biological fall as well. A Naturalist's Year is the current photo-a-day-for-a-year project; it's been broken into quarters by month. The year's quarters don't follow either the meteorological or astronomical seasons, so it's not yet time to post the photos from the year's third quarter.

In order to get an interesting photo each day it's usually necessary to take a lot of photographs each day. Having taken a photo of something interesting, there are times something even better comes along – therefore some good and/or interesting photographs just don't make the grade to be a day's photo.

Here are some of those photos: from June, July and August – meteorological and biological summer –


The first post in October will bring a photo from each day of the year's third quarter – stay tuned.
