I like the bee, and the Tansy is a pretty flower, though it is considered undesirable, cute yellow balls. There is lots of Queen Ann's Lace around here, I don't see the others.

Sylvia K said...

Lovely images. I especially am fond of Queen Anne's Lace.

I have never seen or heard of Tansy, but my, what a stunning flower. It is a little like our Billy's Buttons in Australia.

So very pretty these wildflowers.

Queen Anne has a hanger-on, too. All are beautiful....I need to get out and take some photos. I have seen a red leaf on a tree across the street, and then noticed some big yellow leaves on the cottonwoods next door. Autumn is fast approaching!

Revrunner said...

Especially lovely specimen of Queen Anne's Lace.

Michelle said...

That Tansy is lovely.

Lots of lovely flowers growing! I really do like the knapweed. Looks like a flop of purple hair.

So lovely! I hope to get some tansy planted in my garden next year.

Very similar to what's growing on our roadside verges over here. The habit of mowing everything into oblivion seems to have disappeared in the wake of spending cuts. Hurray!

ADRIAN said...

I see you have Soldier Beetles as well. It's rare just to see one.

Mystic said...

The first Picture is splendid. Rest all flowers saw for the first time.

The bees are very busy! The Queen Anne's lace looks pretty.

These all say "late summer" to me. Very nicely done and I especially like your bee portrait.
