An invasive but also useful Neophyt...

This is an invasive - it is really invasive because you can see it literally everywhere - neophyt from Canada, not unproblematic because it repells endemic species. On the other hand it is excellent food for bees, butterflies and other insects and it looks beautiful with its suncolours

"Solidago gigantea" (Asteraceae)
Riesengoldrute

The photo with the butterfly and the bee sharing the same branch would make a wonderful print/card...great shot...

Hi Heather - you are completely right - I did not even think about it. Maybe I should... but there are so many wonderful greeting cards out there already and technically much more perfect than mine...
