After leaving Amnicon Falls State Park we drove over to Pattison State Park. Our first stop was at Little Manitou Falls.

We then drove down to Big Manitou Falls. This is the fourth highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains.

The face of the Pattison Falls Dam always makes for an interesting photo because of the water colors.

I love photographing water patterns. They make for great subjects in northern Wisconsin because the tannin in the water gives it a brown color.

The wild flowers were out in great numbers throughout the park.

The roses were not blooming but I did find a number of flowers to photograph in a walk through the Rose Garden.

The Azaleas were blooming in late spring in Duluth.

We had several very frosty mornings and most of the flowers and grasses on the Prairie were covered in frost. More frost photos can be found on my website.

 

We have seen some cool nights and warm days and the result has been some nice frost feathers in the prairie.

A walk around the prairie on a beautiful day and the insects were busy filling up on nectar on the only remaining flower, Canadian Goldenrod.

My wife printed, matted and framed six of my fall photos for an exhibit at the Menomonie Public Library. The exhibit will run through the month of October.

Walking around the Prairie I encountered a number of insects this week. The Flower Flies and Grasshoppers are really out in large numbers.

Walking through the prairie I found a large cluster of Milkweed Tiger Moth Caterpillars. These beautiful caterpillars turn into a very plain moth.
