Amazing Elegance

 
These tiny galls are forming on a Woodland Nettle. It looked like bubbles everywhere as these plants grow in clumps. Soon the galls will be all green.
 

 
The strength of a new prairie

 
Damsel Fly
 
 
Many of you enjoyed this Partridge Pea which is a very good food to attract quail and pheasant.
 

 
These Hollyhocks were in the middle of a bleak landscape.
 

 
 Mother turkey and brood
 


 
MMMM I ate buffalo here
 

 
 
Tiger Swallowtail
 

 Freckles and me
 


Sometimes when I think of you
I think in so many ways
I see us in yesterday and tomorrow
I see us out on the prairie
In each and every way.

 
Platte River Beach,  LOL
Walk the shallows to a good sandbar.
 

A simple peck on the cheek
I wasn't sure for sure
Where it came from.

I know not where
But out on the prairie
It' s everywhere.

Another Journey


 
Sammy and Mini, two new friends.


 
Ailanthus Webworm Moth with a Milkweed Beetle
 











 
Another bridge for Ratty
 
 
Butterflies puddling
 

Where were you tomorrow
You could have joined me today
I am out on the prairie
Let me hear what you have to say.
