Meanwhile, from back in Austin, here’s some yellow.

Here’s some flowering goldenrod (Solidago spp.) on Morado Circle in northwest Austin on September 26th. The nearest flower heads are in focus but in the image as a whole I’ve emphasized color over sharpness, abetted by a rather wide aperture of f/5.6. If that number doesn’t sing to you, as the French say, then listen to the flowers’ chanson instead.

The flowering goldenrod I photographed on the Blackland Prairie in Pflugerville on September 28th attracted many insects, including this American snout butterfly, Libytheana carinenta.
