Prickly Pear Cactus

Prickly Pear (Opuntia humifusa) in McKnight Prairie

McKnight Prairie is beautiful at this time of year. The predominant colors are yellow and white, with bright orange clusters of butterfly weed and a scattering of purple phlox. The biggest surprise this weekend was the prickly pear cactus with its brilliant yellow flowers in full bloom. The flowers were crawling with pollinating beetles.
