I haven’t been out with my camera much lately, so when I woke up this morning and saw fog and calm winds outside, I decided I’d better head out. I went across town to Lincoln Creek Prairie and had a nice peaceful sunrise to myself.
I was happy to see a few milkweed seeds still hanging around and glittering in the early light. Despite frosts, I also found a fly and even a still-flowering tall thistle (Cirsium altissimum) plant. Mostly, though, I photographed milkweed seeds – because I’m so short on those in my inventory… What can I say – they’re hard to resist!
I hope you’re all having a great weekend, wherever you are, and finding a little time for your own prairie peace.
Please resend the article from last week about bison and birds. Some how got deleted and want to send to Colorado bird buddy. Thanks.

I don’t have my own prairie but I was in the garden having a peaceful morning today. I enjoyed your photos today. Thank you.
You so beautifully captured the stillness of sunrise on the prairie making me just a tiny bit jealous. Nicely done and I never tire of milkweed seeds.
I LOVE photos of milkweed and milkweed seed. Very nice art display at Morrill (Elephant) Hall! Love seeing what news and images Chris sends – thank you for giving readers a breath of fresh air!
These are absolutely beautiful! I love sunrise and sunset photos and I really love the water drops! And well, I also must mention the cool fly with the tiny water drops ❣❣
