Wisconsin Native Wildflowers in Waukesha County Wisconsin on July 6, 2017

I went out for a short time this morning to capture some of Wisconsin stunning native wildflowers in Waukesha Co. Wildflowers have been blooming for months now, but the peak is getting close as I figure with most species blooming at one time. There was a good breeze blowing early morning which made for some challenges in capturing some of the images. The heat was setting in with full sun lots of humidity when I left.
