End of October

.

How is Halloween like at your place? I guess Asians hardly make that BOO during Halloween? Nothing exciting here except for lots of Halloween-special-cookies that I've been snacking on for the past 2 weeks. Yum.

It's so cold here! I'd rather stay indoors even if there's potential Halloween fun outside. Brr...

Took a walk the other day on a fine Autumn afternoon. If you like Cosmos...

We're having Cosmos everywhere, nothing compared to this massive scale though. Cosmos can be a little difficult to capture, especially when they sway non-stop in the breeze.



Found this fella...

Watcha looking at?


Enjoyed watching it crawl everywhere, cute!

A closer look reveals its face, which I thought is tad frightening. Maybe it's dressed up for Halloween? =P

Ready for take-off. Making its way to a Halloween party? Ta ta!

Tell me about your Halloween fun! I hope that your last day of October ends on a high note!

hey, stardust, nice bug capture! i've never seen a ladybug that looks quite like that--with just one big dot on each wing. she is quite lovely!

Oh, is that a ladybird? I've never seen a ladybird like that though. Cute.

Like your images, always beautiful.

How cute!!!!
Nope, I didn't see any cosmos in here (neither is ladybug).
Glad to see them in your blog instead :-)

I'm not sure if cosmos have fragrance or not... but my imagination is telling me that they smell great.

The ladybug is a fun surprise.

Do you sell your images?

Do you think is possible to adore a person so far away from you that you have never seen or talked to in your life? :-) if so..I'm just so true between me and you! Love you God bless you

こんばんわ、スターダストさん
無事、10月も終わったわ。
忙しい中、充実していたわ。
そういえば、コスモスを見に行くのを、忘れていたのが、忘れ物。
風の中での、花の撮影は、難しいので、
辛抱が必要だよ。

すてきな、11月が始まったね、ロマンチックな秋空の中で。:D

Stardust said...

Sharilyn, thank you, though I'm not sure if it's really a ladybug.

Anonymous, thank you.

J.H., do you like ladybug? =P

Maryann, good imagination you have there, but I'm afraid Cosmos doesn't carry a fragrance. BTW, I don't sell images, I bet they won't fetch me a cent. Ha!

Denzel, thank you.

Michele, thank you. Hugs.

Wayfaring Wanderer, ok...

Silvia, thanks for dropping by despite being busy. Keep on your good work, don't worry about me. =)

梅子さん、素敵な秋を楽しく過ぎましょうね。
