Weekly Challenge - "Metamorphosis"

This week's challenge is metamorphosis and all the possibilities it invokes. Like most words, "metamorphosis" has several meanings:
Probably the most obvious is biology: a profound change in form from one stage to the next in the life history of an organism, as from the caterpillar to the pupa and from the pupa to the adult butterfly.
Or what about the magical implications of the word?
1. complete change of form, structure, or substance, as transformation by magic or witchcraft.
2. any complete change in appearance, character, circumstances; a form resulting from any such change.


And of course, when I think of metamorphosis in terms of art, M.C. Escher comes to mind with his complicated works depicting objects in the process of morphing from one kind of being into another.
Encounter by Escher
Please see the sidebar for the challenge rules ... and don't forget ... entering this challenge gives you an entry into our monthly giveaway. This month's giveaway is a set of 5 postcard prints from Lisa of The Wright Stuff. Maybe you'll be the lucky winner!

oh... I don't know if it is too late to enter or not? But I wanted to add this:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/56151844/cool-fall-hues-crochet-wire-and-glass

It is the change from the bright,cool, summer merging into the warmer shades of fall. I love when it is that time (like now) when the you are on the edge of autumn but still have the warm summer suns, crisp blue lakes, bright clear skies... but there is that hint of the leaves turning, the start of the harvest and the fields emptying, etc. So, that is mine.. I hope I am not too late.

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness!
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run;
A little bit of Keats to get me in the mood for the changing season!
