As you can see, the prairie is looking good in all her fine, summer splendor! Visitors this month are rewarded with a sea of vibrant colors! Plenty of birds are also enjoying the summer prairie. Pollinating insects are attracted to the flowers, and so are the flycatchers that eat them! Thistle loving orioles have also been abundant.

Here are some pictures of the prairie taken earlier this week by Ed Fair.
