It's feeling and looking a lot like early autumn now. A few butterflies are still searching for nectar but many wildflowers have withered and dried up. Many late-summer bloomers such as Queen Anne's lace, goldenrod and asters are all hanging in there.
Largest square: Viceroy and I'm not sure what the other butterfly is. Do you know? (A friend tells me the butterfly is a red-spotted purple.)
Moving clockwise: adult trumpeter swan with two juveniles; Jerusalem artichoke blossom; clouded supphur (I think) on wild aster; dried seed heads of bull thistle (seeds have nearly totally blown away), and blossoms of wild aster.

Can't help you with that one. I thought I could, but I was wrong.
love those purple asters! ours are white here.
Those purple asters are lovely!
I can't help you out with the identification either. I do like the photos, though!
I wish I knew, but it is beautiful whatever it's called. Those wild asters are glorious in their sweet violet shade! How quickly this summer passed.
This is a great early autumn collage. I really like the colors of the blossoms.
Very pretty photos. My fall aster is in full bloom and I must get a photo before the frost hits it. Enjoy the week!
I don’t know the butterflies’ names but they are lovely.

What a gorgeous collection of cheery, colourful images... summer hasn't left just yet!
i like the yellow flowers, i am drawn to yellow in the garden and that yellow butterfly is amazing.
Enjoyed the fall roundup of photo's. The swans look so serene.
It sure does feel like Autumn doesn't it. Great collage---clear and crisp. MB
Oooh, cannot wait for Autumn! Your collage is so colorful and full of life. Love it!
These are all great shots and I love seeing the butterflies. The wild aster is lovely as are all the shots.
Very nice! All of these photos are beautiful.
Beautiful photos...not sure about the butterfly.
