GOSHEN — Clear blue skies on beautiful summer days makes for a great time to go for a visit among the prairies in Goshen.

Goshen News photojournalist Joseph Weiser visited Abshire Park and the prairie behind Waterford Crossing and came back with these vibrant images. You can see the pollinators and birds are out and about preparing for the cooler temperatures to come. He captured honey bees, male and female goldfinches, a yellow swallowtail butterfly, and even a common yellow breasted warbler.
