The Evolution of a Leaf Monster

Fall is here, and as I’ve learned recently, it provides a natural habitat for Leaf Monsters (otherwise known as six-year-old boys in leaf piles.) Behold my recent documentation of one of these elusive creatures:

The Leaf Monster begins to emerge from his pile.

He continues to emerge. (Note the ominous outstretched Frankenstein arms. This Leaf Monster is truly terrifying.)

Fortunately, the terrifying Leaf Monster has here transmuted into an adorable little boy with his faithful dog.

However, Adorable is not a natural state for this little boy. Here, he reverts to his more comfortable  Goofy aspect.

  1. Being an autumn leaf monster ranks right up there with making snow angels in winter. You match the season with this post!

    1. Thanks for your comment; this Leaf Monster was VERY eager to be photographed in his pile! We’ll see what he comes up with when the snow falls…

  2. Those are the memories worth keeping ๐Ÿ™‚
    Many of mine have disappeared, at least for the time being, because my blog was hacked and I had to take it down. Luckily I’d backed up most of it but many of my photos were lost I’ve started again on http://www.iwalkalone.co.uk but it’s going to take a long time to put things back together again. If you haven’t already, back up your blog,especially your lovely photos ๐Ÿ™‚
