This post is a mix of insects and flowers from my garden, but mostly flowers.
Pink cosmos with what I think is a yellow-striped armyworm at one o’clock and some other unknown insect at 12 o’clock.
Purple coneflowers with out of focus rudbeckias in the background
Skipper on a lobelia siphilitica, sometimes called a blue cardinal flower because (except for it being blue rather than red) it looks so similar to a cardinal flower.
