Green OK

A cool weekend trip to Oklahoma.

As soon as we crossed the Red River into Oklahoma the greenness from the recent rains were evident. Hey Oklahoma maybe you could share some with us in Texas?
So it is not often to see the Halloween Pennant this close. The red stigmas were brilliant. Sometimes a road kill offers a close up look, eh.
On Sunday morning we headed for a morning outing at Lexington WMA. And it was so cool, both the prairie and the temperature!
Of course Briar was ready and happy to go!
Since I was so focused on the Liatris squarosa I totally missed the Geometer caterpillar until I got home. LOL
Even though the flowers were finished blooming I admired the Coneflower (Echinacea) wet brown dead heads.

The patches of Loosestrife (Lythrum) were really buzzing. There were quite a few of the Tangle-veined Flies (Neorhynchocephalus volaticus)!

The Snowberry Clearwing moths were sipping too!
The prairie was full of life!

Thanks Claire, Paula, and Briar for the tour of one of your special places.
