[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just another native aster... but one I grew in my little native garden. The rabbits impeded the growth of two of the three native species of asters I tried to grow but this one species... the rabbits didn't bother with... except one rabbit did build itself a nice "nest-like" depression/hideout under its canopy of vegetation. There are literally hundreds of blooms on this one plant. I think I will plant more of this species next year. It is called "October Skies"... Aster oblongifolius. The butterflies and particularly the bees love it.

I have another one or two photos of this species that I may upload later.

Hi Larry,

A beautiful flower and a wonderful close-up. The lavender and yellow are lovely and the details are razor sharp. A magnificent composition and a pretty leafy background.


I wish everything was 'auto everything', Larry!
But, as they say, if wishes were horses, beggars might ride!
A lovely shot with sharp details and then there's that flower!
Simply stunning!
