I continue to find insects on the farm.

Generally I don’t like goldenrod growing in my prairie area. I view it as a weed and invasive species. However, it does provide substance to a wide variety of insects. Since there hasn’t been much else to photograph lately I’ve been out photographing insects on my Canada Goldenrod plants. This has been a little different year because there have been almost no butterflies. Generally the Monarch Butterflies stop during their fall migration but I didn’t see a single one this year.
