Early autumn 2017 in Poland

• 19 photos

The fall is coming and I just a gift from a friend - Canon 50 mm lens. This gallery shows first three days with that lens (and sometimes with Raynox DCR-250 macro converter).

The three stages of flowering of  viper's bugloss  ( Echium vulgare ), also known as  blueweed . Pinkish-red one is just blossoming, pinkish-blue is the mature one and apparently the road of life has ended for a brown one.
Viper's bugloss - three stages of flowering
Amazingly beautiful flower. I'm not sure, but my field observation shows that it might be  different stage of this (also beautiful) flower .
White flower with pink and purple stamen
Very tiny mushroom (less than half of inch height!) on the meadow made of the moss.

The  staghorn sumac  ( Rhus typhina  syn.  R. hirta ) is changing its colors - every shade from green to deep, dark red. The colder, leaves only, but still colorful photo from the same session  can be found here .

The fruits of the  dog rose  ( Rosa canina ) with the blue sky in the background.

The very beautiful flower. Probably a young one, while  the mature one looks even better . Wow.

The close-up of the head (and black wings!) of the  european Peacock  ( Inachis io ), also known as  Peacock butterfly  which feeds on a purple flower. See also:  non-closeup version .

Backside of  european Peacock  ( Inachis io ), also known as  Peacock butterfly  which feeds on unidentified purple flower. I guess his masking colors weren't that good... See also

The leaves of the  staghorn sumac  ( Rhus typhina  syn.  R. hirta ) are changing colors during the early autumn. See also  the even more colorful photo taken during same photosession .

Very tiny flowers of unidentified plant. The flower itself has diameter of 1-2 mm, the petals are relatively very small and looks like the duck's foot.
Late, tiny flowers
The  Cinnamon bug  ( Corizus hyoscyami ), also known as black&red squash bug. It was feeding on very interesting denseflower mullein which looks like the human -  see it on the another photo.  The Cinnamon bug is less seen in Poland than  similar firebug ( Pyrrhocoris apterus ) .

The lady or  denseflower mullein  ( Verbascum densiflorum;  also known as  dense-flowered mullein )? The lady-alike look (tall, with skirt from leaves, head and a few hands) of the mullein was a important part of Slavic folklore. This photo isn't good, but I decided to share it, as the look of the plant is flawless.

The non-native, decorative closeup of dark green/orange hairy grass seeds... Or however you call these fins of grass :)

Autumn intensifies! Yellow-oragne-greenish tree leaves lighted by a warm, late sun on the beautiful blue sky. How I wish it could be daily like that. It was 16°C (61°F) here, so quite hot as for such late season.
The autumn color punch
Creeping plant* with red fruits, green leaves on the white stone background.   *  Cotoneaster horizontalis ?  Gaultheria procumbens /teaberry/checkerberry/boxberry/American wintergreen? Please, contact me, if you know what's that, even if you aren't sure.

Unidentified grass turns dry.

The big unidentified tree turns yellow.  I had to stand about 40 meters away from it and still I had to take 6 photos.
