#WHPontheroad for colorful leaves sightseeing

Leaves are food factories. In the summer, leaves are colored green made mostly by chlorophyll. As fall begins, photosynthesis slows down and the varying degrees of red pigment (anthocyanin) becomes more evident which creates the red or orangey colors in maple leaves. Small amount of these colors were in the leaves throughout the summer but the chlorophyll was stronger it masking the other pigments.

Taraxacum officinale

That's the scientific name of dandelion. The plumed seeds as shown in this image are called pappus. The feathery bristles help the seed to travel as far as 5 miles away.

Honeybees' antennae are used as sensors. Each of the antennae is used differently. The right antenna is used for social sensory cues to tell whether one is an intruder or one of their 'amigos'

Seeds are embryonic plants just waiting for the right condition to germinate.

Here's a trivia.
.
Did you know a date palm seed estimated to be 2,000 years old (making it the only surviving contemporary of Jesus) was discovered in 1963 while doing excavation in Herod the Great’s fortress near the Dead Sea? It was planted in 2005 and named Methuselah. It now stands over 4ft high.

Cancer is like dandelion. If you only get rid of the leaves and flowers and seeds, unless you get rid of the roots, it will come back. The roots in cancer are called cancer stem cells. They have been recently discovered in acute leukemia, breast, colon, brain; and are responsible for cancer recurrence.

Allicin is the major biologically active agent in garlic responsible for its strong aroma when freshly crushed. It's the same component associated with its putative curative property such as lowering blood pressure and reducing atherosclerosis, the thickening if arteries.

Snails have two sets of tentacles. The upper pair has their eyes; the lower set has their olfactory organ ('nose if you will').

Snails are herbivores or vegetarians. They'll eat what you put in your garden salad sans dressing of course. .

Butterfly wings are made up of thousands of scales. When light strikes these layers of scales, light is reflected several times. The combination of these numerous reflections generate the intense iridescent colors of their wings.

A friend in need.

Dragonfly wings are hydrophobic or in lay language, waterproof. It is made up of chitin, the same material that makes up the exoskeleton (external skeleton) of insects.
.
The overnight mist could have weaken the wings' strength. This dragonfly was literally 'crying' for help. I put it under the morning sun while on my palm, and in 5 minutes it flew. Free.
