Autumn evening

On a warm, damp, windy evening, I didn’t expect to find much to photograph in the garden. In fact there were dozens of garden spiders, slugs and harvestmen, plus these: a vine weevil that I guess had been blown off the vines onto a wall, a beautiful walnut orb-weaver spider on the gate – and a hedgehog clearing up the spillage under the bird table. I’ve piled up leaves in a corner of the garden in the hope that hedgehogs will hibernate under them when it gets colder.
