|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This interesting perennial wildflower is Prairie Smoke, Geum triflorum. It's typically found in dry prairie, preferring gravelly or sandy soil. These have been introduced at the Bartel Grassland Restoration where they're doing very well under significantly less dry conditions. In Illinois, it's only found in the northeast and north-central parts of the state.|
These flowers will be replaced by rather feathery seed heads, giving the appearance of smoke when seen en masse.

A perfectly composed image of these beautiful wild flowers. The lighting is just right and the focus is tac sharp. Your choice of an f/8 aperture gave you the needed DOF in order to show off these little beauties in fine fashion.
I don't believe I have ever seen Geum triflorum in the wild. You will have to post a shot of them when they get their seed heads on. Great job!!
