Autumn Walk - Part 8 Final

Some flowers are collected at the end of winter as they make lovely dry flower arrangements.
 A Guineafowl feather lays forgotten in the grass.....
 and a bit further on a porcupine quill. I onder if this belongs to the same one who come nightly to devour all my flowers in the garden? :)
 A caterpillar probably looking for a good place to pupate.
 Golden orb spider with its small male waiting its chance to mate.
 The day draws to an end. It is getting chilly now in the evenings. Time to break out those fresh lemons and make tea with it in the evenings in order to ward off the winter colds and flu.
