THROUGH MY LENS: last flight

A humble bumblebee visits some still-blooming native purple asters

Summer’s rich bounty of flowers and fruit is giving way to autumn. But around the pond on my farm the birds and insects are still enjoying some late-comers, like the bumblebee above who found the vibrant purple asters to gather pollen from. The weather has been  unusually warm and dry for October, filled with enough sunny days yet to enjoy walks where I need to remove my jacket after the sun rises higher, and when I can still capture a few shots like this one. It reminds me that all of nature is getting ready for winter, the coming of a long sleep, just like me.
