July, 2013 Outing – Goose Lake Prairie – Morris

Good to see such a group of dedicated photographers venturing into the prairie on another hot and humid Saturday morning! 

Although it was hot, there were many photo opportunities – prairie flowers, berries, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, an old windmill, wagon, and the Cragg cabin.  Nature also cooperated by sending in a few clouds to liven up the sky.  After a steamy photo shoot, we had the opportunity to cool off and learn a little more about the area from Art, the naturalist at the visitor’s center.  Next, we ventured to the historic and uniquely hospitable Weits Cafe for a hardy meal, some super-thick milkshakes and a good dose of conversation.

Thanks to all who attended for making this another fun photo outing.
