The square meter photography project continues! Throughout this calendar year, I’m trying to document as much beauty and diversity as I can within a single square meter of prairie along Lincoln Creek in Aurora, Nebraska. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite images from July. If you want to look backwards, you can click to on these links to look at selected photos from June, May, and January.
July was a little slower than I’d expected, to be honest (August, however, has been really hopping). I was surprised how few pollinators showed up to feed on the butterfly milkweed plant in my little plot. (I’m sure it didn’t have anything to do with the loony guy and his camera looming nearby. There were lots of insects hanging around on butterfly milkweed plants elsewhere in the prairie…) Regardless, there was still plenty going on in the plot last month. Here are some highlights.
