This white-lined sphinx hummingbird moth was harassed by this silver-spotted skipper butterfly.  Every blossom the moth fed from, the skipper followed, sometimes trying to land directly on it.  I have never seen that behavior before. I didn’t know if it’s behavior was caused by rage or love. 😉 possibly idolatry.

This has been a lousy fall for photography here. We seemed to go straight from summer to grey winter weather with very little colour in between. However, I did manage to take a few autumn nature pics. This dogwood grows outside our front window.

Thanks, Betty. It was actually a very dull day. I'm surprised the image turned out as bright and cheery as it did.

I’ve found the best time to shoot autumn foliage is on overcast days. One can escape those nasty blown highlights that replace color. Then it’s just a matter of good PP to brighten and intensify the colors a tad, if needed. You’ve done that.

This one, leaves of my Burning Bush, was in the sun from the front. I had to move around to the shadiest side, and even so, you can see the left side where a few leaves were blanched of intense color from the sun.

I did lighten and brighten things up as best I could. Yes, colours do tend to "pop" on cloudy days, and no troublesome highlights to contend with.

 

However, it's probably OK to have some overcooked highlights on a burning bush. 😃
