Excellent as usual.

I finally found your caterpillar - it is the Gold Moth, Basilodes pepita. Host plant plant is "Crownbeard"(Verbesina), including Wingstem (=Actinomeria). It feeds on seeds in the flowers, as well as the leaves. I doon't think it belongs on Equisetum - maybe just exploring?

Some images (often first misidentified before reassignment) here:

If life brings you lemons, you can make lemonade.

Mole, you know the dragonfly & the damselfly are different. It's amazing for a photographer. Many people just think they are all dragonflies.

Bock - Glad to be of help! To answer your other questions - of my zoom lenses, only the A 70-210 and A 35-105 are fixed F-stop. In this series, only used the Raynox with the 35-105.

Tom - Glad you enjoyed these! We had a few nights of mid-30's, but no frost yet - although already some frosts up in the higher elevations.

Ira - Thanks so much!

Kevin - Thanks for your very kind words! Good luck with the odonate identification!

MtnMan - Glad you enjoyed the autumn stroll!

Patty - Yes, they do "pop" apart at the sections pretty easily. You can also make panpipes and "oboe reeds" out of them.

Zuken - You are too kind! So glad you enjoyed these. I am blessed to live in a very photogenic region...

Penolta - Thanks so much for the ID, I have not yet had time to look it up, so you saved me much effort & time. This was in the midst of a field with two species of Verbesina - both golden crownbeard & wingstem!

John - Thanks so much!

Mary - Indeed many folks confuse the two grouips of Odonata. I might be out of a job if I did...

Mole I'm curious what camera did you use for these? Is this a K-X?

Did so, very much! Not being able to visit the park in person, I think your pictures are always a very satisfying second best. Most inspiring!

Jyaku - Not a K-X but its predecessor - K-M (also known as K2000). Bottom of the line Pentax, but still a great little camera!

Kjell - Thank you so much for your very kind words. Hope you will get to visit East Tennessee someday!
