Maybe a Symphyotrichum, haven't tried to key this out yet. Was growing at the edge of mowed grass and natural/naturalized lakeside vegetation.
Fly hanging out on a fruiting Queen Anne's Lace. Loving the macro setting on my new camera!
Some escaped mint growing at the edge of the mowed area at the lake shore. I didn't check what the leaves smelled like.
Spending time in an oak grove.
