Friday favorites: North Dakota blooms

oakville-flowersPrairie flowers bloom at Oakville Prairie in North Dakota. One of the few undisturbed tallgrass prairie fragments left in the United States, it needs to be seasonally burned to retain its native plant composition. The flowers here look to me like they might be Maximilian sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani).
