Monarch Butterflies rarely sit still long enough for good photos, but these two were much too busy to fly away. I was careful not to disturb them, as we are all entitled to some privacy at times!
Wildflowers were putting on a lovely show by the edge of the lake last week.
I struggle to keep thistles out of my garden, but I must admit the flowers are beautiful, and the Goldfinches love them.
I’m always a little sad to see Goldenrod blooming, as it means Summer is coming to an end.
Just as well I made the effort to take these photos. When I returned the next day, the rangers had cut them all down. 😦
