Love this! I find insects so interesting and hopefully someday will have a camera to capture creatures like these up close. The dragon / damsel flies are fascinating and your cone flowers beautiful! Is that joe pye in the last shot?

Thanks Garden Girl.

Hello Violet Fern, I like your blog will add it to the side bar soon. Yes, that is Spotted Joe-pye weed with the Monarch butterfly hiding in the center.
