Cold winds and rain have taken most of the leaves off the trees on our property but a few kilometres down the road next to Lake Ontario is the Dundas marsh area known as Cootes Paradise. Because it is below the Niagara Escarpment and next to Lake Ontario, the weather is moderated. There are still trees with fall colours there.
Next to the water there are still flowers in bloom.
Here is a closer look at the Nodding Bur-Marigold (Bidens cernua)
And last, but not least, here is an attempt to photograph a very bright, shiny, unidentified fly that is on the Lance-leaved (sometimes called Grass-leaved) Goldenrod (Euthamia graminifolia).
