As you can see by the picture, the temps have been cooler of the mornings. A few mornings they were in the 40's. The leaves are changing colors. I read in the news the other day that this was going to be a good one this year. I'm hoping to take a day trip (or two) to see it. Maybe pack a picnic. Yes, there is a granddaddy longlegs on the thermometer. Guess he was seeing what the temp was too.
I moved the bird feeder up to the porch a couple months ago. Where it was hanging I could not keep the squirrels off of it. Since I've moved it, I've only see one on there twice. It is within easy access so I'm not sure why, but I'm glad! I've enjoyed watching them from my kitchen window. I've had a female downy woodpecker come most every day.
This picture is from WBU.com. She is a beauty! Hope to get some pictures of my own soon.
