Biologists? Now that my summer semester is over, I just had to get out yesterday to do some hiking so went over to Prairie Park for a couple of hours. What struck me was how green the prairie area was with no maintenance.
Do you think maybe this is an indication of the sorts of plants we should use around our yards rather than the usual garden store fare?
Here by the way are a couple of shots from my visit.
First up is a hummingbird moth-resting- until I went to take the NEXT shot.
Next a very nice orb weaving spider that was hanging out near the nature center itself.
There was at least one other photographer out-a fellow from Ottawa with his new camera- and I steered him to the spider. Hope his shots came out well and that enjoyed his visit to the park.
