Photos From My Garden #5

This is the last post in this series of Photos From My Garden.


Monarch caterpillar on a swamp milkweed plant.


Inch worm which, as I understand it, can be any one of a number of species of moths.


Monarch caterpillar on a swamp milkweed plant again.




Even though it is not orange I think this is an orange sulphur cosmos.  The white balance must be off.


Swamp milkweed blossoms




Another cosmos


Orange sulphur cosmos and this time it is orange; not yellow.


Thank you for stopping by.


All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Sigma 105mm macro lens.

  1. Nice to be immersed in garden flowers once again. In my garden, I get a range of colors from my Cosmos sulphureus, light yellow, dark yellow and orange. Sometime a cross will produce dark yellow with orange ‘brushstrokes.’ I love those!

    • Thank you Eliza. I hadn’t thought about cross pollination. I did have some white cosmos in the garden and since this was late summer these orange sulphurs were probably self seeded. Cosmos in general seem to produce a lot of seeds and the orange sulphurs are super seeders.
