Poecilognathus Fly on Maximilian Sunflower by Broomweed 5761

Click for greater clarity.

Here are some harmonious old friends: a tiny fly in the genus Poecilognathus; a Maximilian sunflower, Helianthus maximiliani; a flurry of broomweed flowers, Amphiachyris dracunculoides.

I took this picture on October 9th near the edge of a large property in north Austin where I’ve photographed nature repeatedly during the past decade. Unfortunately for me, construction took over a large part of the site this year, but some areas remain untouched for the time being.
