Prairie Grasses

Friends, some fall grasses going to seed in Crex Meadows. I think the grasses are almost as pretty as the flowers you just have to get very close to see their beauty and get the light behind them to bring out the colors. This Indian grass (top) and Big Blue Stem (below) are indicators of a tall prairie eco system, and they both grow 4-5 feet high in parts of Crex exposed to full sunshine. Big Blue Stem has a turkey foot shaped seed head at the top of a dark stem as seen in the image below.  til Tomorrow MJ
