Alongside a couple of dirt roads on the extreme east side of East Gwillimbury
Most of the flowers seen along the dirt roads were the white Queen Anne's lace, enjoying a very good year. But upon closer inspection I also discovered other flora and fauna.
Starting with the largest square and moving clockwise: a bee on bull thistle (Cirsium vulgare), musk mallow (Malva moschata), soldier beetle on Queen Anne's lace (Daucus carota), everlasting pea (Lathyrus latifolius), cloudless sulphur butterfly on Canada thistle (Cirsium aevense) and monarch butterfly sipping water from the damp sand. FYI: I included the botanical names because wildflower common names vary from area to area.
