Fall Remnants

Last October I had the pleasure of finally reaching the top of Drinking Horse Trail out at the Fish Technology Center. When I came back down, I found the flowers buzzing with insects. I thought posting these fall remnants would brighten my winter mood a bit.

Thank you Jillsy and Ellen. I love insects, too. And I really love finding out I've photographed a mimic. When I'm out and about I can pretty much spot a hover fly, but after that, I think I've got the real deal. I'm being careful not to get stung when a lot of the time it doesn't matter.
