About the only thing I have yet to post from the field are different kinds of goldernrod.
It's taking a long time to blossom and I'm not getting very good photos of it. Seems like there is too much yellow and the pics lack definition/contrast and look blah.
I'll post some closeups of what's blossoming so far, and that's probably it. I've lost interest in it.
(Those white spots are morning dew.)
Under Asteraceae (The Aster Family)
Shows 5 types of goldenrod:
1. Canada Goldenrod (Solidago canadensis)
2. Prairie [Missouri] Goldenrod (Solidago missouriensis)
3. Soft Goldenrod (Solidago mollis)
4. Gray Goldenrod (Solidago nemoralis)
5. Rigid Goldenrod (Solidago rigida)
That about wraps it up for My Walk In The Field Series.
So month of August:
Month of July:
Wild Bergamot (Beebalm)
And more - July is the booming month for prairie wildflowers.
