Our resident photographer Fidencio Marbella has captured yet another amazing sight on Wolf Road Prairie in his beautiful action shots of two different species of moths.
First up is the Hummingbird Clearwing Moth (Hemaris thysbe), named so for its common mistaken identification as a hummingbird.
Next up are Snowberry Clearwing Moths (Hemaris diffinis), with their gold color and black band.
It is always wonderful to see the incredible kind of life inhabiting Wolf Road Prairie. Luckily, avid photographers like Fidencio capture these glimpses into the rare prairie ecosystem for everyone to see!
STPS Director Dr. EJ Neafsey has captured a visitor to our historic Prairie House! This barn swallow has nested right above the doorway to the 1850’s schoolhouse and Dr. Neafsey even captured them feeding their young. It is a great example of the life you can see on the prairie–an island of nature in the Chicagoland area! Check it out!
Dr. EJ Nefsay, director of Save the Prairie Society, compiled a series of aerial images documenting the changes in the natural landscape of Wolf Road Prairie from 1938 to 2013. Check out this amazing video!
