A few years ago, I was thrilled to see pollinators coming to my frost aster...but they usually only make it to late October.

I told you about scoring several old issues of The Conservationist, the magazine of the New York State Conservation department. They're all from just before I was born, from early '63 to mid '64. Each issue has some wonderful artwork including an illustrated center spread in each issue showing examples of a natural feature of New York. I thought you all might enjoy this one from the June - July 1963 issue.

That'a nice to have them all on a page or two like that instead of flipping through a book. It's a lot easier to compare them that way.

At some point I intend to look them all up and see if any thing has changed. Sometimes further study has caused taxonomists to change designations or such, and this is 50 years old. Considering that these are common species in New York, though, they're probably pretty well established.

Thank you. I thought so, too and wanted to share them. I wish I had a good scanner to capture them properly, but I'll have to settle for taking pictures of them for now.
