Upon Closer Inspection

This weekend, our family visited my in-laws in Sarpy County (south of Omaha).  While we were there, I grabbed a couple hours of photography time during an evening and morning when the wind was nearly calm.  In the evening, I poked around a little prairie planting in the yard.  The next morning I walked a grassy cropfield edge. 

From a distance, neither area looked like it had much going on. Very few flowers were in bloom, and there wasn’t much obvious insect activity.  As always happens with prairies, though, there’s always much more than meets the eye – sometimes you just have to get down on your knees and look for it.  I took some of my favorite photos from those couple hours and made them into a brief slideshow.
