Fall flowers are arriving!
|Joe-Pye Weed (Eutrochium)|
|Flat-top White Aster (Doellingeria umbellata)|
|Devil's Beggarticks (Bidens frondosa)|
|Nodding Beggarticks (Bidens cernua)|
There aren't many dragonflies left, but I spotted this lovely one:
|Autumn Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum)|
There are some truly impressive spiders in the outhouse!
|Fishing Spider (Dolomedes)|
Isn't it neat that you can sometimes look at a tree and know exactly which species of bird was there, even though you've never seen it? The horizontal rows of pecking are characteristic of a yellow-bellied sapsucker woodpecker. They eat bark, tree sap, and insects.
