Seen near the railroad tracks in Mount Albert (East Gwillimbury)
One of my favourite places to look for photogenic bugs, butterflies and wildflowers is alongside railroad tracks. But it seems like many wildflowers here have finished flowering early this year due to the heat we've had. (Is this my imagination playing tricks on me?) A few are hanging on. Here are a few, starting with the rectangle and then moving clockwise: mixed wildflowers (Queen Anne's lace, goldenrod, purple loosestrife and cattails), goldenrod (Solidago - but I have no clue as to which one), chicory (Chichorium intybus), spotted knotweed (Centaurea maculosa) and widow skimmer dragonfly.
