Calke Abbey Garden 5/7

I believe this is one of the species of Rudbeckia, perhaps you could offer more detailed advice on that.  The bonus with this shot is of course the butterfly that landed as I was about to take the shot, and no, I don't know the species of that either.

Whenever I see flowers like this, Brian, I automatically call them Black-eyed Susans, whether they are or not. HA!
Brian Walbey: I guess that is an American expression then Ginnie.
The butterfly knows his way!
Fine capture Brian.
Brian Walbey: He's spoilt for choice with all those blooms.
Definitely one of the browns ...possibly meadow brown.
Brian Walbey: That's what Lisl says it is Richard, take 3 House Points.

The Butterfly is a Meadow Brown, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl, I thought you or Chris might know.
they look a little sad, fall entering
Brian Walbey: Yes it was in the early part of Autumn hence they look a bit sad as you say.
Lovely shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tom.

Looks like there coming to and end like the summer Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes it was early Autumn so they were starting to fade.
It's a brown one Brian. Nice bonus
Brian Walbey: A Meadow Brown according to Lisl.
I love seeing the golden patterns made by the pollen.
Brian Walbey: Indeed, and they are certainly well coated.
A lovely shot Brian and a very fortunate arrival! smile
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Martin, thanks very much.

Ah yes; these look the same as I ones I've seen; also the same stage of being passed their best. The butterfly seems happy enough, though.
Brian Walbey: Yes the Autumn was getting under way when I took this.

A beautiful photo of the flowers we call 'Yellow Sun-hat' or 'Gold- storm' (Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldsturm'wink adorned with this one butterfly!
Brian Walbey: They are lovely flowers aren't they.
