A triangle of aster flowers

Triangle of Aster Flowers 8862

And finally from Great Hills Park on November 4, here are some wildflowers that do look like they belong in the same family as sunflowers and asters—because they are asters (Symphyotrichum spp.)

You’re looking straight down, so the orange-brown color you see came from fallen leaves on the ground below the flowers. Note the presence of a long-legged insect that was also underneath the asters.
