Butterfly Milkweed/Duluth, Two for One
One of my prairie favorites, the Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa interior if you're so inclined) grows all over the midwest. It has a tight cluster of orange flowers that seem to make them irresistible to insects and prairie-philes.
Here's one of the piers in Duluth. I typically don't have much faith in my ability to make black and white photos (meaning that when I hit the "convert" button in Photoshop, they don't tend to look too great) but I like the way this one came out.
