By the time autumn arrives the leaves are worn, ragged, tasted or consumed by insects and animals, stressed by forces of nature like wind, drought and ice, sometimes covered with dirt and grime from dust storms and pollution, maybe washed clean by rain. What suggests to an insect to march down a narrow pointy fireweed leaf and stitch a road of bites? Who was the big hungry insect that dined on part of a cow parsnip leaf, making the leaf its table, chair and dinner?
