More August pictures in our habitat garden.



Black swallowtail butterfly on Phlox.

Helianthus 'Lemon Queen' late summer through fall bloom.
A tall plant that stands out in the panicum/switchgrass.

Look at those pollen lumps on the back legs of the bumble bee.

Hoverfly is a plentiful pollinator.

The turtlehead/chelone is doing very well with all the rain this year.


Goldfinch through the screen door. If I open the door they always take off.

Beautiful! I love this garden. The drifts of flowers and grasses combines so well. Interesting shot of the hoverfly. The Turtlehead looks great!

Those goldfinches sure do frighten easily, don't they? They should call them goldflinches.
