The September sun is lower in sky and no longer shines direct on Frankie's cave. Nights are cooler so Frankie sleeps deeper inside. It's a balmy 70º range all night in the cave which is more than comfortable for him.
When morning comes Frankie must exit the cave for more warmth. He wants his shell temperature to rise up to the high 80's. That will take some sun. Frankie seeks a spot in the middle of the yard.
Fall also brings more cloud coverage. One moment there is sun and the next POOF and it's gone. The Seeker needs patience to catch the sun.
