The prairie in summer and fall

This time of year it is hard to realize that the prairie is predominantly grass. The commanding view is of wildflowers and the graminoids are not very prominent.

In fall, on the other hand, the prairie seems to be almost nothing but grasses.

The two photos are of almost the same location, one taken two days ago, the other taken a year or so ago in mid October. In the latter photo, there seems to be nothing but Indian grass.

I find both scenes attractive, for different reasons.
