Mower at work on Pinnacle Prairie ends tall-grass and native-wildflower photography season three months prematurely
Please click on individual images to ENLARGE and widen view of partially mowed Pinnacle wet prairie on August 19. 2010. Mowing continues this morning.
The unfortunate thing is that many wildflowers were just reaching reaching full bloom despite the drought and the annuals will not make any seed this year. I missed two weeks and went out there at noon Thursday and half the area was mowed. The mower was there before sunrise and is at work now!
