Common Blue Violets are now blooming on the farm in large numbers.


The last few weeks I’ve been walking around the farm looking for insects. These are just a few of what I’ve found.

Another frosty morning on the Prairie. More frost photos can be found on my website.

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 and I spent a beautiful morning walking along the Park Point Beach. We were thinking of all the folks in Florida who want to live on the beach but have to endure hurricanes to do so. They should think of moving to Duluth.

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.

The Touch-me-nots have been out along the Red Cedar State Trail. The insects seem to be enjoying them.
