A Mellow Yellow

Yesterday morning, just after the sun was rising over the western horizon, I ventured out into one of my rural Missouri prairie gardens to look for some dragonflies. I did find a few, but it was still early and lots of dew, so most of them were still hunkered down. But the landscape is developing into some nice colors right now. In this post, I’m featuring some images of some Gray-headed Coneflowers (Ratibida pinnata) that are in nice bloom right now:
