Yellow on Yellow

Yellow on Yellow

I went to the hay fields yesterday, to find some wildlife-- or flowers or something new to shoot---
No luck at all....

The GREEN CONE FLOWERS were teaming with insects--lots of bright yellow sulphurs-- so I attempted to make a picture, rather than a precise close up!. Ghosts in the bg are dried aster seed heads.

Interesting how the Sulphur matches the Coneflower petals.....

Very similar to the Clouded Yellow, that visits our shores - this year they have had a good showing and I have seen one in our garden, but no photograph

It's a beautiful summer scene, Jenn...I see it was taken in the last day of summer...

This might actually work better as "a picture, rather than a close-up." It gives us a better sense of the incredible camouflage that nature has provided.

Thought at first it was just the flowers, then viewed large and thought "how delightful", and "how did she notice that?".
