This is a prairie cinquefoil seed resting on my finger tip. At Nachusa Grasslands, a preserve owned by The Nature Conservancy located in Illinois, we collect seeds to plant old farm fields back into prairie. It's amazing what great things can come in such small packages.

Location: Franklin Grove, IL, USA
