Harvest Moon

This time of year, nature gives us Conkers, the seed of the Horse Chestnut tree.  Great to look at or to play the time honoured British game.

Conkers

At night, the air is still, cool and there is a clear sky.  Under the cold moonlight sky, are things pleasant.

Hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus)

and things unpleasant (for most people, but very tasty if you’re a Hedgehog).

Common House Spider (Tegenaria domestica)

Over all these visitors to the garden, the Harvest Moon shines brightly, bringing a hunters light to both the arachnid and insectivore.

The crater Tycho sits prominently in the lower southern half, its rays covering the lunar surface, and contrasts well the lunar maria.
