Savage Garden - part Three

As the fall season moves further along, the “bugs” have come to the Gardens at Waters East for the final fling of the season.  Hundreds and hundreds have been showing up here, there and everywhere.  They must love what they find – because they are spending lots of time in lots of places.

This is the third and last in a series of three postings documenting many (but not all) of the “bugs” and more that have been sighted here recently.  Up close, some of them look rather frightening.  On that I think we can agree!

Enjoy the company as you wander the gardens today.

NOTE:   Since this Blog is meant to be an accurate journal of the gardens;
no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here.  It is what it is.
