Prairie Pretties



















 
Reflections

I can't believe I found this tiny area that still had tiny grasshoppers and a Woolly Bear caterpillar.  A tiny micro climate island out on the prairie.


 
 Still hanging out with the best, even though it has been a bit cold.
 
 
A dry creek bed through limestone hills that were once ocean reefs in  the
Pennsylvanian Age.

  2. Very cool to find that. We are covered with snow here now but I saw a moth fly past me just a few days ago. Nature is full of sweet surprises.

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  7. What a pretty place you found for camping. The yellow berries provided a nice bit of color. And the wooly bear caterpillar and grasshopper were pleasant surprises, too.

  9. All jewels of the prairie. I am always in awe when I look at perfectly formed bird nests. Cute snaps of your adorable pup and all those photos are a treat. A belated Happy Thanksgiving to you :)

  10. Intriguing findings, Steve. I think it was a bit too cold here in the last week to think of tent camping though....;)

  11. A bit of history there is always interesting to me. I try to imagine how it used to be here where I sit, sleep and live and will eventually die but I cannot see it as it must have been. Your creek bed photo is a reminder that it might all come flooding back some day.
