I didn’t make it up to Lake Superior this year for the fall colors but I have pictures from 2017 when I went to a retreat up at Wolfridge nature center.
I won’t make it up to Two Harbors this fall but I can picture what it looks like right now. 🙂
I love fall weather when it is cool and windy . . unlike yesterday which was hot and humid.
I let the wild frost aster grow in my yard because the bees like it. It is a native plant and considered a weed but I have always thought that it is pretty and it grows without any help from me and is a valuable plant for bees and butterflies.
Usually, I use a zoom lens for bee photography because that way I don’t have to get too close. I actually took these with a macro lens which was a challenge because I had to get closer and they never stopped moving.
I know enough with the butterflies already. I think this is my last for a while. I took it on a bike ride near Lake Phalen.
I grow a variety of wildflowers and tame flowers in my garden. These daisies have been re-seeding themselves for years. They choose the same spot near the edge of the vegetable garden.
