Baby Nigerian Dwarf goats! What could be cuter? These are just 4 weeks old: Emerald, Pearl, Graham and Saltine. Here they are waiting for their breakfast – bottles of yummy mama’s milk!
This is a hummingbird moth, so named because it flies and hovers like a hummingbird. This one is flitting about the Kinstone Prairie – especially loving on the bee balm (a.k.a. Monarda fistulosa or wild bergamot). A relatively common moth in North America, this one is a Hummingbird Clearwing (Hemaris thysbe).
Coneflower (Echinacea) is an amazing plant and supports a huge number of pollinators! Here we show a bumble bee, a skipper moth, a black swallowtail butterfly and a giant swallowtail butterfly! We have lots of coneflowers in the Kinstone Prairie and they are blooming profusely just now. BEAUTY!
