Default Fall Flora (and a fauna!)

Sunflowers are the official Kansas state flower. They bloom abundantly in the fields and ditches everywhere in August and September. They attract abundant insects. The yellow butterfly blends so well with the sunflower bloom that it's hard to see unless you're looking!

Wow, that's a stunning color. I can see why it's difficult to see the yellow butterfly.
Great shots!

That second one is really interesting - at first glance I wondered why the flower looked so weird. Good natural camouflage, isn't it? First one is a lovely shot, too.
