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.

Exquisite flowers and colors and I love the that busy bee!! Delightful captures for the day as always, EG!! Just the bright spot I needed! Hope you have a great new week!!

The goldenrod is particularly lovely!
Beautiful, EG! And I like your scavenger hunt too especially the wee frog.

I love these beautiful posts!
Gorgeous shots...so sharp and clear! I love that about your photos.
I have purple asters in the front of my house. And I don't remember planting them there! Love the lobelia. Would love some of that.

You do a great job showing colorful flowers,
What a beautiful mosaic this is!
Very fast, it will be mid October in the next morning I wake up.
Love seeing that bee at work.
Marvelous collage. I love all of the colors.
Beautiful collection of flowers.
Nice collection of wildflower photos.
Wildflowers are so very attractive, esp as your photograph and arrange the collage.
Stunningly beautiful these flower shots!
Beautiful collage ... Fall is such a colorful season. I admire that you take time to learn and share the "real" names of each flower.
What a wonderful collage! Lovely combination.
It's nice to see how pretty your september is. I hope the rest of your september is just as lovely.
The wild lobelia is a deep blue I don't see often, and I don't think we have any here. Your collage is wonderful!! And all going away in the fall, WAH!!!
September is good month for light and colour, and usually the most settled weather wise... at least in Llandudno. Great shots!
Very poetic images with plenty of colors!Awesome collage EG, thanks for these lights!
Beautiful flowers. I saw a field of goldenrod yesterday. Just gorgeous. I think thistle is one of my favorites.
Beautiful floral collage EG.. Spring/autumn are the best!
What a lovely collage!
What a pretty mosaic!
A colorful collage with vibrant colors. Love the bee on the thistle!
A lovely collage of flowers! Wonderful!
Lovely flowers, such a nice variety for fall. Bumblebees seem to really love thistles, the bees really go after my Cardoon flowers. I presently find myself dis-astered, some that bloomed for years all up and disappeared, and the ones I bought last year didn't seem to come back. I have some that I raised from seed so maybe they will bloom next year. I miss them in the fall, the lovely purple color.
I get some of my best insect shots on bull thistle flowers.
What a beautiful mix of colors and forms that your September collage has. Glorious.
Lovely colourful and sharp pictures Funny how bees and butterflies love thistles, great shot.
Beautiful mid september...in colors and shapes!
