Oatka Creek Park • October 14

Maple Hill color watch. The trees are really beginning to turn color now.

Fringed Gentian. One last valiant gentian flower is blooming. The light frost we had seems to have not been a problem as flowers are still blooming and White Cabbage butterflies are still flying.

Fringed Gentian. The last time this species bloomed in Oatka was in 2011. Will we have to wait another three years to see these flowers again?

Palm Warbler. It is getting late in the fall for these warblers.
