Autumn afternoon

leaf6

He’s four. He probably doesn’t remember much about last fall.

He’s really, really excited about the leaves this year.

Really.

leaf7

Those leaves swept him off his feet.

leaf8

He was buried in happiness.

And when you’re happy, it’s good to spread the feeling around.

leaf2

See … they’re much happier now.

leaf3

Speaking of happy …

leaf4

One of these two is not particularly thrilled.

Can you guess which one?

leaf5

No worries.

I spy toes.

leaf9

Then my little entomologist discovered a praying mantis.

She promptly captured it in her butterfly house.

leaf10

Careful observation followed.

Then she released it.

leaf11

He crawled off into the sunset … she headed into the house …

Another autumn afternoon comes to a close.
