[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A sure sign that Fall is in the air is the flowering of the goldenrod and of course the fall-aster. Years ago I have retrieved some tall asters < 3-4 feet> from a meadow by Beaverbank, NS and planted them in my "bushveld" where I try to attract insects and birds alike. The aster have spread nicely, and are generally late bloomers.

Sometimes I get lucky and while shooting wildflowers a kind insect will appear...

On this day the light was right, AND an eager bumble-bee joined the party.

Hello Jay,
This is a very nice composition with those beautiful flowers and this bee? I like this POV and details that you caught. Good DOF and nice natural colors. Thanks,

EXQUISITE colors!!
AND, a very nice composition. An added
bonus is the bumbler who seems to have stumbled onto the aster....and found it
a good spot to "rest".

Nicely done, Jay

It's lovely, Jay,
these colours, I love violet flowers.
And this cute bumble-bee, it's time to have them back! As I saw on TV Canada and North-America have so much snow this year as we had in the last winter. I hope it will melt soon and all the colourful flowers are back than.
Bye and greetings
