The Audubon Sanctuaries: First Day of Fall
<Click all photos to enlarge.>
Happy Fall! My favorite season is here, so I walked the Fred Archibald sanctuary this morning to check on its progress. The grasses are super tall in the front part of the sanctuary, obscuring the goldenrod, but in the rear section, it is in full view.
A few butterflies were working the last of the purple thistle. Leaves are starting to turn color, and berries are getting red. Enjoy my photos from today, and don't forget to visit and support your local sanctuaries!
A few monarchs were busy on the thistle.
Dogwood leaves and berries.
A persimmon and a fly.
This bumblebee was sleeping.
I liked how the fence follows the rolling slopes.

To raise funds for hurricane relief, please consider purchasing a butterfly print from my Wings of Hope collection.
