July 7, 2013 I visited the Irwin Prairie State Nature Preserve, a cloudy and at time rainy day.
Happy I chose the day as the light was just right, with the clouds helping to diffuse the light.
I am not aware of the species of plants I photograph. I submit the images to the department and a botanist identifies them, if they are native or invasive.
This little gem is, Grass-leaved Arrowhead, a state endangered species.
