I was not sure we would be able to go bug hunting.
Around noon the rain stopped and we took off.
An article about a prairie very near to our house caught our attention.
We had planned on exploring this native Prairie when we needed a close to home spot.
I was so excited to see Hummingbirds on the Prairie.
No nectar feeders here!
The Thistles are just beginning to bloom.
They are one of my favorite wild flowers.
Another set of bugs for Bug Guide to help out with.
I just call them Thistle bugs!
These are Milkweed nymphs.
This male appears to be molting.
They will begin their Autumn Migration soon.
The Silverspots were out
as were the Goatweed Leafwings.
This is a beautiful Native Prairie.
We had so much fun hunting bugs today.
