Mr. D keeps mowing paths, Green Girl keeps walking on them.
The butterflies this year are everywhere. Even a novice like Green Girl can capture a butterfly with her super-slow digital camera.
The prairie blooms are mostly yellow in September.
With purple asters spotting the field.
Seeds fly everywhere, among the bees and dragonflies, mosquitoes and butterflies. No wonder everyone's allergies are terrible.
So much goldenrod.
Sweet, crisp autumn fruit.

Green Girl loves the symmetry of flower heads--all the seeds growing in perfectly designed spirals. There is always order in nature.

Giant sunflowers showing off.
Prairie grasses turning red. All the richness of summertime is fading now, softly turning gold before dying for another season.
