There are a lot of cool things happening outside, right now as we transition from late summer into fall. This challenge is an attempt to get a discussion started. Notice the ant in the lower part of this close-up photo I took this morning at the Prairie Center in west Olathe.
Here’s the challenge:
1. Can you name the plant? (I know it’s tough without the flowers but not impossible.)
2. Can you name the structure that seems to be the center of the ant’s attention?
