The Asters seemed like they popped up over night and it was good to see the butterflies such as the Monarch which are not too plentiful this year also enjoying the feast. I saw several Painted Lady Butterflies today but only one Monarch who didn't stay too long....the bumble bees and Honey bees were plentiful the first day of fall...

Best view in light box! Thank you!!!

    Thank you all for your kind words. and opinion...The picture I really liked the best of my series is the photo I shot today on the 24th of the Painted butterfly with the torn wing...The lighting was softer this morning...I had problems with yesterdays harsh sunlight in the afternoon!
