Around a favourite birdwatching pond
Although fall is in the air, many wildflowers are still blooming here.
Largest square: bumble bee on bull thistle (Cirsium vulgare). Working clockwise: New England aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae), wild lobelia (Lobelia syphilitica), tickseed sunflower (Bidens aristosa), frost aster (Symphyotrichum pilosum) and goldenrod (Solidago).
FYI: The reason I include botanical names is because they always stay the same but common names change from region to region.
