S is for SPIDER. This species is really quick to drop out of sight at the least disturbance, so I photographed from the underside before attempting to move through tall grass to the opposite side of the web. She dropped off the web when I took the third step.

A is for ASTERS. I think there are 20 or more species in the northeastern USA, many in their glory just now.
AND, I've several ideas for "Z" that have not been used as yet, but family matters have prevented me from: 1) searching out and scanning old chromes; and 2) taking some new pictures of "Z things" that I would not normally photograph. "X" remains the real problem - a very short list in the dictionary. What we need are some zebras with crossing black stripes, to do double duty.

Tricky, especially if the expectation is three distinctly different subjects rather than structural letters formed by steel members of a bridge or similar metalwork. Let's see if any of us, or several, can come up with something interesting. Solutions may be inserted for any of those letters. Oh, and NO ZEBRAS!
