Fall Beauty

I’m making my way back through some of my 2017 images for some new things I hadn’t yet posted. One that caught my eye was this image I captured in mid October, at a friend’s butterfly garden near Paola, Kansas. When photographing there, I was immediately drawn to the vivid color of the Celosia flowers and this unidentified wasp that was busy searching for nectar:

The patch of celosia flowers acted like a magnet for many different insects. Guess I need to plant some in my butterfly garden next year!
