Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Prairie Wild Rose- Wind Cave National Park, South Dakota. After an early October snow in the Black Hills, snow crystals begin to melt off a cluster of rose hips on a prairie hillside. Rose hips are the name for the fleshy bright red, urn-shaped fruit of the prairie wild rose that bloom in prairies of the northern plains in early summer. These fruits provide a vital food source for a variety of wildlife species from the sharp-tailed grouse to the coyote during the fall and often frigid winter months on the prairie.
