This is the time of year when I start feeling a little frantic about the coming end of the growing season. The last of the flowers are blooming. Insects are becoming less abundant, and migratory butterflies, dragonflies, and birds are heading south. Grasses are turning golden brown and fluffy seeds are floating through the air. It’s a gorgeous season, but one tinged with sadness as another season nears its terminus.
I’ve been sneaking out for quick photo trips as often as I can. I can feel winter creeping up on me and I feel a strong need to get as many flower and insect photos as I can before it’s too late. As a result, I’ve got hundreds of photos from the last couple weeks. Here is a small selection from that image library.
