The New York Botanical Garden is one of my favorite destinations. So many photo opportunities! This was the first time I'd ever been there in November, however, and I wasn't expecting much. But to my amazement, the gardens were beautiful with fall leaves and flowers! Mums, of course, I expected ... but dahlias and daisies and so much more. Their landscapers and gardeners are real artists; note how so many areas have layers and layers of flowers and plants, making for beautiful views and beautiful photographs.
I was also surprised at the number of insects on the flowers at this time of the year. It was quite cool, so they moved around slowly, making it much easier than usual to include them in some of the photos. It was almost like they were posing for me.
