About Today’s Photo:

Chickory is such a summer flower. It’s various shades of blue—from cool, pale whitish to deep sky blue—create lovely splashes of color along roadsides this time of year. They’re also a magnet for pollinators like this hoverfly.

Nikon D600, Sigma 105mm macro lens, ISO 1250, f/18, 1/800″ exposure.
