Today is the last day of meteorological Summer, and tomorrow is the first day of meteorological Fall. The weather has been cooling lately; despite today's heat we're supposed to drop back into the lower 80s again next week. The Fall flowers are starting to appear, as well as various nuts and berries. Harvest approaches.
I walked along the Dykeman Walking Trail today in the course of my day off errands and got these macro shots of fading Summer: a Pearl Crescent butterfly sipping on Boneset flowers; Jewelweed growing next to one of the wooden bridges along the trail; some Spotted Knapweed; and Flowering Dogwood berries. (View as web album here) Enjoy!
