72 Seasons

Perhaps the calendar of the natural world runs faster than the human one, because as October arrives, so the insects begin preparations for winter. Mantis and crickets lay their eggs now, to bring new life in the new year, and the larvae of the cabbage white and swallowtail butterflies harden into chrysalises, to protect themselves through the winter. Meanwhile, ladybugs and stag beetles burrow into tree roots or under the earth for almost six months, quietly waiting out the cold until spring.
