The Beauty and Complexity of Prairie in Three Minutes Posted on October 14, 2015 by Chris Helzer Several people have asked for a different version of the 30 second video I posted earlier today. If you’re one of those viewers who wants more time to enjoy each image, try this 3 minute version. Share this:FacebookEmailPrintTwitterMorePinterestTumblrLinkedInRedditLike this:Like Loading...

Thanks, that’s much better.
Yes!! Now audio; )
As always your photos are SO beautiful. Can you tell me what plant it is about 2.22? Makes me think of poinsettia but of course it is not. And – I’m curious about the stacked rock ‘fence’ – was it in Nebraska? I remember seeing a lot of that kind of thing in the eastern US on a trip many years ago and they sure are romantic-looking.
Hey Teresa, the plant you’re talking about, I think, is bee balm (Monarda fistulosa) with its leaves turning color in the fall. The rock fence was in the Kansas Flint Hills. There are a lot of them left in that landscape – and yes, I they are very cool looking.
Thank you for the 3 minute version — I tried to find the 2 photos you posed of the windmill – water tank – and baled hay with hills in the background unsuccessfully. Which title will bring me the photos back?
Hi Joanne, that post was on September 18. It was the photo of the week.
Thanks Chris, you should create posters, I would certainly purchase one of these and more
So gorgeous – makes me realize I need to stop and look more carefully whenever I’m out on the prairie. Thanks!
P.S. Love the shot with the ant on the yellow flower with the shadow of the spider on the other side of the petals. Wow!
Me too !
Chris: an awesome, inspiring collection of photos. We are currently working on a short video of one of our landscape projects where we transformed a suburban lawn to a sanctuary of habitat. The video includes some segments interviewing the client, clips of the site now, and back when we were getting started about ten years ago. It occurred to me that it would be enticing to include a couple of your photos in this video. We would only do this with your watermark giving proper original source credit, but could enhance the drama of what our videographer could capture in a day. Let me know if you are interested.
