White Butterfly

Just the last few shots from the summer, when all the flowers seemed to grow smaller, and fighting to survive in the colder temperature. This cabbage white butterfly usually was the first one to show up, and often the last one to leave before winter arrives.

There are lot of clean up to do outside before the snow come, so I get to see this pretty butterfly eating and resting. They seem to slow down a lot, and mostly stay in the sun to keep warm.


The Glorious End Of Summer

This wild aster flowers are in full bloom and at their best in the colder climate. Bumble bees love them! They feast on the nectar and pollen before summer goes away. If you spend enough time observing them, you will find it so fascinating to study their behaviors.

Wild flowers are gorgeous flowers, live freely in nature, and self-care. They need no human intervention or bother with meticulous cultivation. They self-seeds themselves year after year to bring beauty into the world.

Summer Best and Last

Summer is leaving us, and this is one of my summer best and last. The beautiful painted lady butterfly came to say goodbye. She stayed around, warming up her wings for a while so that I can have a few photos. Nothing makes me happier than to spend even only a minutes outside to see the beautiful world that I live in.

My lady didn't seem to be busy with the pollen or nectar from the flowers, but more likely to soak in the sunlight before she goes on her long journey to wherever.


Pretty Orange Dragonfly

It has been a while since I last saw dragonfly. Living in the condo complex, nature bounty seems to be limited! We are only granted a small space along the edge of the house to plant what we want, otherwise, it is an empty grassy field with a few trees.

Needless to say, when I saw this pretty orange dragonfly, I was thrilled, and tried not to disturb it so I can snap a few pictures. Though he kept his eyes on me, he let me take his pictures.


2019 Gold Finch

Gold finch loves sunflowers, but I ran out of time planting them this year. I did put down a few seeds, but due to the many weeks of rain, nothing sprouted.

However, there are few gold finches visiting my coneflowers. I am not sure what are they feeding on, but I am thrilled seeing them.

Gold finches are very skittish! One little noise can send them away, unless there are the brave ones like this lady finch. She stays so I can take a few photos. Nature made me happy!
