Dew In Prairies At Springbrook
As the sun came up, the dew evaporated into the air as things warmed up.
The image in the dew drops illustrates how a lens inverts whatever it sees. You can see the sky on the bottom of the drops.
As soon as the dew evaporated off the damselfly it flew away and joined the many others searching for small insects to eat.
Each flower blooms for one day only, with a new bud behind it taking its place tomorrow.
The puccoon in the picture below is also starting to bloom after the managed prairie burn earlier this spring. Their large yellow clumps can be seen from a long way off.
