Beginning of Autumn?

August 7th, 2007

Well, gosh, I was going to write a post about August being the beginning of autumn, but I decided to check my archives before doing it. Good thing, too, because I was going to write very nearly the same thing I wrote a year ago. Everything I wrote then applies equally well today, except this time I have a good picture of a clearwing moth.

 

In that picture, it just looks like a bug, but when you see one of these hovering in front of a flower, you could swear you’re looking at a tiny hummingbird.

Also, to update last year’s post just a bit, Wikipedia now has a page showing the exact time of the traditional beginning of autumn. Going over to time.gov, I see that we are already 2 hours into autumn as I write this. Then why is it so darned hot?
