End of summer

 

Last week autumn has officially started when the sun crossed the equator. Fortunately the weather is still good, and the autumn colours haven’t arrived yet. Today we went out to find the last signs of summer: the last flying dragonflies and butterflies. But it was obvious the insect season is coming to an end. Only few dragonflies were seen, but we did find quite a lot butterflies in a row of thistles. The past summer we had a large influx of Painted Ladies, a species that has a preference for thistles. So this picture is a nice ending of this summer.
Now let the autumn begin, with all its nice colours.
