Hearts in Nature

Many people collect images of hearts in nature. I found this prairie coneflower as I was looking for prairie falcons this morning. (Focus on What’s at Hand)R columnifera heart-2

 

This is what prairie coneflower normally looks like.

Ratidiba columnifera-3

Prairie coneflower is in the sunflower family. You can see it if you mentally flatten the cone down a bit. Each of the brown stubs on the cone is a separate flower, as it true of all sunflowers.

Still not seeing prairie falcons. There is the possibility that they didn’t nest here this year.
