One bat missing/God's Paintbrush

I bought this framed cute little bat at the Rural Society Sale.  My granddaughter loves bats.  She saw the Asian bats at the Columbus Zoo and just loved them.  They look like year old babies wrapped in a black scarf hanging upside down.  They are huge.  You can see through their wings when they are all wrapped up.  I thought she would love this picture.  But, I added it to my Halloween display and I may just keep it.  I searched the web for other bat pictures and my goodness, they were scary.  So I passed on that idea.  BUT, I have the cutest handmade bat from Dottie Red from across the pond.  She sent it to me last year.  I didn't get it til almost Christmas so I used it on my tree, hah.  I just came across it and now I can't find it, boo.  I will find it and then I will post it.  It was so sweet of her to send it to me.
And now for God's Paintbrush.  He has been busy coloring our world.

This critter was on my mailbox.  He's not a bat but he is upside down, or is he?  Look at those feelers.......there are some inside the mailbox.  Anyone know what kind of caterpillar he is?  I hope fall is beautiful where you live.  Kelle on the blog  Enjoying the small things lives in Florida.  Her sister sends a giant box of colorful leaves to her every fall.  Her kids then get to play in the leaves.  Is that not the cutest idea ever.  I am going to do that sometime. 
On my way to go watch over my granddaughters last night I drove through the college and thru a wooded area.  I had to remind myself to breathe as I went through those beautiful trees.  Wow.......this kind of beauty is outstanding.  Speaking of outstanding, I hope your week has been outstanding.

Bats creep me out! I loved the box of leaves idea too. I thought to do it for quinn and madden.

I'm not a lover of bats because they creep me out but my nephew is. He has books about bats and he even buried a little bat he found dead in a little box in his mother's flower bed and put a little cross as marker. This was a few years ago.

Yellow caterpillars in your mail box. How beautiful. I never heard of such a thing. All I know about these beautiful creatures is that they emit a poison from the spiny hair that causes irritations to the flesh when touch. I'm not sure if those yellow caterpillars have this defence too.

There are always lots of leaves but to mulch but I would have never thought of sending some as gift. Brilliant. JB

Bats are too scary for me. Love your fall leaf photos. Ours are fallen.

Beautiful pictures of the leaves. What a good idea about sending leaves to Florida. I might just send my father-in-law a couple of leaves.

Fall is definitely at your house. The colors are so pretty. I think of you all the time. Things have been rough on the creek . The back and work are no longer blending well.My laptop got ill again and I have had to wait for Gene to come here to fix it. Her also brought me a new chair so I can sit and work at the iMac. Lost all pictures from my laptop. Hope you are well. Loving looking at your pictures after so long. genie

Hi Debby,

Your fall photos are breathtaking! I especially love the second one of the house (barn?) nestled in the lush foliage of rusty oranges and deep plums. Missing Canada right about now, but your pics 'picked' me up!

Have a great weekend!
