Native Wildflowers at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on July 23, 2018

I stopped at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Milwaukee County this morning for some mid-summer birding. Birding was about what is expected for this time of year, sorta slow, but the native wildflowers on the grounds there were stunning. I walked some of the prairie and woodland edge trail and path areas there and there is a lot going on as far as species blooming. Prairie grasses are just about to start blooming. Very few mosquitoes which surprised me. It was a nice morning with temps starting around 65, full sun but a few clouds rolled in soon, a little bit of a breeze. Images were taken on July 23, 2018.

    Beauty at it’s best. And how does the rabbit fit in with flora? Cute. Thanks for sharing. Some of your flowers I see in the wild but never took the time to look them up. Thanks for that too.
