A Wooly Bear cuddles close to the stem of a tall flower, trying to stay warm after a cool night. The morning sun warms the land around, Many insects slow down when if cools at night, and soon morning frosts will stop many until the next season. this is a late season larvae that announces the approach of fall and cooler weather. Sometimes I have thought maybe if I stepped on them I might lengthen summers season.I don't do this, since I wouldn't want someone to step on me either.
Cardinal Flower, a type of Lobelia is in the Bluebell family.
Earlier in the week I passed this aster and counted ten butterflies on it.
Stiff Goldenrod reaches for the sky.
Closed Gentian graced the sun in large patches.
After a few weeks of tagging, I am out of the tags. I still like to get close and admire my friends.
This lady let me do a hand held close up while she drank the sweet nectar of the Goldenrod.
Have a lovely week!
