'The hills are alive ...'

Julie Andrews singing 'The hills are alive ...' runs through my mind when I walk in the prairie. My prairie is alive - not so much with the sound of music, but with a myriad of butterflies and dragon flies (or damsel flies, if I knew the difference!) and bees and flies.

I am not fast enough with my camera to catch them all, but here are a few.

Maybe someday I'll know their names, but for now I just enjoy these flitting visitors. From flies ...

... to grasshoppers.

The prairie brings them in.


  1. When I walk on the prairie, I hear the music from the movie, Dances With Wolves. Thanks for visiting my blog today.

  2. Dances With Wolves is more appropriate to a prairie setting, for sure!
