Pep in the step

OMG, it was 46 degrees at our house this morning so quite chilly ! I needed my sweater and chicken hat (thanks Claire!). Indeed, it was a wonderful start to autumn!

The Smooth Gayfeather (Liatris mucronata) and goldenrods are spectacular in the field! The bumblebee is making sure the gayfeather is ready for the monarchs! And look in the middle of the sky part and you can see I happened to catch another insect (although blurry) flying by.

A closer look at the bumblebee!

A wasp was on the Rigid Goldenrod (Solidago rigida)!

Here is the full view of the Rigid Goldenrod! Isn’t it a really blue sky today?

A feather caught in the Partridge Pea. It is a Ring-necked Pheasant’s that had been recently released from next door. They seemed to like our place better because we have great native food, grass, and cover.

The Hackberry Emperor is worn. Well, it the end of another season.

Certainly, this is a strange casing. I have never seen one quite like it. It was on the underside of a blackberry leaf. It even had what looked like an entry hole on top.

Side view! Maybe someday I will find out what it is or not LOL 🙂

Keep looking!
