  1. Hi Steve - always good to see the photos and catch the drift of your world ... and thank you for putting up the captions - those milkweed beetles are a delight to see ... while the black swallow tail is definitely black ...

    Gorgeous - cheers Hilary

  3. People don't realize the tremendous number of species on prairie grasslands. it's sad that there's so little of it left.

  4. Great captures from your little piece of prairie, Steve. That looked like a mighty fine catfish. You really did well on the pictures of the beetles and the butterfly.

  6. The butterfly milkweed is a striking splash of color. And of course I am partial to ladybugs. (You can keep the catfish. Not a lover.)
