Perplexing Hexagons

     I always knew that yellow jackets built the cubicles where they lay their eggs in the shape of a hexagon.  What I didn’t realize is that if the nest is unhindered by obstructions, the nest itself can be built in the shape of a hexagon.  Additionally, if you look closely you’ll see that the eggs were also laid in stages, all three of which are—you guessed it—in the shape of a hexagon.   Our Creator is an amazing scientist, a master mathematician, and an awesome God. 

Other fall finds include these lovely pink and purple flowers, berries, and a fig leaf.
