Lots of insects around the farm in late summer. It won’t be long and they will all be gone. The Wooly Bear Caterpillars are all over the place now. I thought I had seen the last of the Monarch Caterpillars several weeks ago but this one turned up a couple of days ago. I doubt he will make it.

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.
