Morning. It's been quite the hot summer and today and the next two days are going to be in the 100s plus. Yuck. I don't know if its the heat or what is going on but there have not been many butterflies around at all except for very small ones. I have planted for them but they are just not around to take advantage of, it's very sad because I love seeing butterflies. I had to go to the Nature Center at Milford Lake to be able to see some this year. This is an image I was able to capture of a Monarch on a Black-eyed Susan flower. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hello all my co- #bokeholics  ! I hear it is Dragonfly week in the UK. While I am not in the UK I thought I would share one anyway since it had such lovely bokeh behind it. This is a Pond Hawk I captured last week on one of the flower stalks near my pond. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hello everyone, how about another butterfly today. :-) I have not seen many large or any type of butterflies this year at my home except for Skippers. I finally saw my first Monarch but a wasp chased it away before I could get a photo. I got this photo of a lovely male Black Swallowtail at the Milford Lake Nature Center. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#waterbirdwednesday #newbirdpoker  

Hi all! This is another of the bird shots that I had been able to get while I was in Michigan. One evening we went to the shore of Lake Erie as I really wanted some lake views while there. I spotted a Heron so I put my zoom lens on but I didn't even need to as it got so close at times it was difficult to get all of it in the shot. Heron's here never let you get that close, it was amazing. It was just walking along the shore looking for food. I was able to get a good number of images and this is one of my favorites. This has a bit of it's reflection so it fits the Poker game this week curated by +Jan Glasziou Rainbird .

Hello! A beautiful cool mid 60s morning here in Kansas in July how lovely! I have to share one more photo from my fabulous day where I was able to have a flight on a B-17 from 1945. This is a view of the front and as I mentioned another day, it was very hard to get an image without someone in it polishing. In this shot there are 2 people doing that. LOL I took out a couple that were just standing but the man on the left walking is our pilot. He was a very nice guy who sat and chatted with us a bit before the flight took place. A good pilot as well as we had a great flight. :-) Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#macromonday  

Hi all! It's raining and supposed to be cooler this week so a good start to the week. I captured this Lady Mantis in my Cleome plant the other day after I was watering. Must have got her a bit wet because it you look closely she has a drop of water hanging off her face. I had never seen a Mantis so perfectly green. She blends in quite well. I only noticed her because she was moving but she sat and posed for a few photos quite nicely. Hope you enjoy her and have a great day!

Hi all it's #steamysunday  once again and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your steamy images! Let's see those steamy shots of ANYTHING steamy you like, it does not have to be trains we like it all from steam off your coffee to mist in the mountains to fog. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy.
It's literally going to be a steamy Sunday here as we got rain this morning and then heating up for our last near 100F day. This image is from a cooler day in Michigan at the Henry Ford Greenfield Village. It's an artsy shot of No 7 through a covered bridge. I did some Photoshop work o it because there was a huge electrical box right in front of part of the train. Hope you enjoy my efforts and have a great day! Image is best viewed large. :-)

Morning all! We are going to be boiling hot once again, up over 103F. I thought I would share something that makes me feel cooler. Here's a lovely sunset image from last weekend at the Geary State Lake south of me. Hope you enjoy it and if you are hot like here be careful out there. Take it from me, push mowing in this heat is not good. :-) Hope you all enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, it's Friday and you know what that means #FridaysAreBokehlicious  ! This is for all my #bokeholics  out there. This is another of the bird images I shot while in Michigan.  Some lovely ducks and some dirty water made for lovely bokeh. :-) When I was there it did not seem dirty, I believe it is plant material and not waste and it really showed up in a photo. I think these were Mallards, at least the ones on shore were. Hope you enjoy them and have a great day and start to your weekend!

Hi! While I was in Michigan, I was able to get some images that, for me, are the best ones I have ever gotten of 2 birds that are fairly elusive to me. The first was of this Egret that I captured a number of shots of one evening after dinner. In this image it had just caught a fish and was going to eat it. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Morning! So, as I mentioned I got to fly on a B-17 two Wednesdays ago. It was a very cool experience and one I highly recommend. It is through the Yankee Air Museum at Willow Run Airport in Michigan. This is the front of the B-17G that they fly showing the nose art. It was built in 1945 but did not fly in the war. It was used by the Coast Guard from 1946 to 1958 for search and rescue missions. It has been restored to Combat style reediness with Machine Guns and bomb sights, etc. It was a beautiful plane and was very hard to get an image of it without someone in the photo polishing on it. I removed that person in this image. :-) Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi! We are going to be boiling hot all week, at or over 100F (38C) so I thought this image was appropriate to share. This is a sunny Sunflower that I actually photographed during the winter from some cut ones in the un against a black background. I went looking for a local sunflower field on Saturday and was disappointed to see that it was all corn fields this year. Glad I grew a few of my own. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.

It's going to be a bit steamy here today, 100F about 38C. My image today is from Henry Ford's Greenfield Village inside it's Roundhouse. The Edison locomotive is another of the 3 that they use to pull the train around the park. The large loco in the back is just a display one that you can view from underneath which is pretty cool. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! Note: I will have a bit more info about the photo on my Blog today if you are interested in the image more. www.alittleplaceontheweb.com

"Hey, what are you doing? Why are you back there taking a photo, my face is up here!" I found this agent of the Gullmanati on a beach in Michigan. He is not fully mature so not wise to the ways of evasion. This is for that theme that I have haven't heard of #seagullbutsaturday  Not sure who all are in on this so tagging a few I have haven't seen mentioned somewhere.

He is not fully mature so not wise to the ways of evasion. This is for that theme that I have haven't heard of #seagullbutsaturday  Not sure who all are in on this so tagging a few I have haven't seen mentioned somewhere.

Hi all! It's dark and cloudy out today. Felt like something bright. How about a Bumble on some Butterfly Milkweed. They sure are enjoying it this year. Wish I'd see some butterflies though. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

We are actually getting some rain these days. Had a storm yesterday and one is about to hit today. We need it after the heat we have had drying everything out. For my photo today, I saw this guy before I left on vacation and haven't seen if he is still around. I was pulling some weeds in my garden and saw some movement which I thought was an animal of some kind. All of a sudden, this big guy came hopping out. He is the biggest frog I have had at my pond for a long time, at least as big as my hand. He stayed for a bit and modeled so I had to show him off. Hope you enjoy him and have a great day!

+TransportTuesday 

Morning all! I mentioned last week that I was going to get to do something once in a lifetime if it did not rain. Today I am sharing a couple images in one of what I got to do. The hubster and I were able to take a flight in a WWII restored B-17 bomber shown in the image with the bomb doors open. I think they did that to cool it off inside. Anyway, it was such a cool experience. 12 are allowed to go at a time but 2 did not show. We started out in the back but as soon as it took off you were allowed to get up and move about and see the different views out the plane. Obviously from the pic on the left, at one point I was standing behind the pilots. I got to sit in the Navigator's seat for landing and that was quite the view and close enough to the front for someone that does not like heights. LOL They don't bother me much in a plane though which I find weird... more »

Anyway, it was a very awesome experience that I found especially exciting because I have an uncle who was a pilot of these planes during the war. So hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! The image is best viewed larger of course. :-)

Hi all, I have a hand to play in this week's game of On a Branch curated by +Darion Jackman . I hit a couple sub-themes, one of yellow and also feet well, half hit that one as it is only a foot. :-) This is a Goldfinch I captured this spring at my in-laws that was perching in their Ornamental Pear tree. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

Hey all! It's #steamysunday  and as always co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your steamy shots today of ANYTHING steamy you like, we enjoy seeing it all. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them. Let's see those steamy shots!
So this past week I was in Michigan and went to the Henry Ford Museum and Village. At Greenfield Village they have Ford's original steam locomotive #7 that used to pull his Pullman car where he was needing to go. It's a beautifully restored engine from 1897. I love the color of it as well. I rode behind it around the Village a few times and photographed it in several places. Here it is pulling out at the main entrance. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hello, all my #bokeholics  I hope you don't mind me playing in this theme today since I couldn't yesterday as I was driving all day back home to hot and dry Kansas. I loved the bokeh in this image behind these Lilies produced by their leaves. Hope you enjoy it as well and have a great day!

Hi all, sorry I have not been able to catch up with you all, hopefully this weekend when we are home. My image today I took at the Henry Ford Greenfield Village on Tuesday. They had these lovely hydrangeas growing and I caught a Bumble Bee in flight and even got a bee butt. Hope you enjoy it and are having a great week!

Hi all, I am off on another adventure where I am, ironically, hoping for no rain because it won't happen if it does. It's a kind of once in a lifetime opportunity too so it will kill me if I am so close and can't do it. Anyway, on to the photo. We got to go to a Wolf Park with my sis-in-law and her family. It was raining that day but the wolves were out though wet. They were in enclosures but I got a few fairly good ones through the fence and this is one. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

I took this at the BNSF yard in Topeka a while back. It was from an angle you don't normally see and of an engine still in some pretty old Santa Fe colors. Hope you enjoy it and are having a great week!

Hi all! Happy Forth of July to all who celebrate and happy Monday to everyone else. I thought I had an image from last year of fireworks but it was not on my stick so I found an older image I had on my One Drive that was appropriate for the day. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day! Hope to catch up with you all soon.

This is one of the many Showy Lady Slippers that I saw in Tamarac Wildlife Refuge in Minnesota. It was a good year for them and there had to be 100s of them. This is Minnesota's state flower. It's a wildflower and part of the Orchid family. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great start to your weekend!

Hi all! I felt like sharing a butterfly today. :-) I saw either this one several times or several of these when I was at the Tamarac Wildlife Refuge in Minnesota. I could never get very close at all and this was even shot with a Zoom, it or they were very elusive and always moving. This is a White Admiral Butterfly which my mom-in-law ID'd for me and I now know is the same type I saw in South Dakota which was much more cooperative. LOL Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Morning, I finally have a train image to play in this theme. This past Saturday I was in Abilene, KS and heading home when I saw the lights of a train coming and decided to get a pic. If you look at the station in the photo you can see I was on a BNSF line. Imagine my surprise when it got closer and I saw this. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! It's a hot and #steamysunday   and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your steamy shots today! We love ANYTHING steamy so please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them. Let's see your steamy shots of anything from mist on a lake to steam off your coffee or tea to railroading!
My shot today is from the Large Scale Steam train I help operate up in Minnesota at Rollag. It was Steam School this past weekend and we were steamed up so students could run. Operating at this moment is a young guy very interested in the train and who has quite the knack for operating it. He's going to be a very good engineer when he is old enough to get his license. This is a Wagner built locomotive. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! Going to be another hot one, already is and not even noon yet. Up to 97 today at least. How about a sunset, I have not shared one in a while. I took this in Nebraska as we were heading to Minnesota last week. It's a 2 shot panorama and best viewed large. Hope you all enjoy and have a great day!

Hello all my fellow #bokeholics  it's #FridaysAreBokehlicious  ! I've got a lovely wildflower shot for you today. This is Coreopsis Grandiflora or Large Flowered Tickseed. It was blooming like crazy in the ditches a couple weeks ago. It will bloom all summer but this heat has slowed it down a bit I think. Anyway, took this shot of a lovely group with more providing the bokeh. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all! Cooling down into the 90s today I think and hope. Yesterday was way too hot at 105 F which we did hit. This image is from cooler days a couple weeks ago. For +Bee Thursday this is a Honey Bee that was visiting some wild Fleebanes in my yard. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day and stay cool!

Hi all! It's going to be a soul sucking 105 F here today. UGH Finally actually summer though for this heat. I have a hand to play for #newbirdpoker   #birdpoker  created by +Phil Armishaw and curated this week by +John Wade . This is a Cardinal male I captured during the winter in one of the trees outside the window. He had quite the angry bird face going on. Hope you enjoy him and have a great day!

Hi all! Back in Kansas where it was 75 already at 6:45 am. Heading up to near 100 F again. Yuck. Playing in the +TransportTuesday theme today with another image from the annual Bi-plane Fly In and the flight and smoke display. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! It's travel day back to the land of heat! It's lovely in Minnesota today cool and in the 60s and only heading to mid 70s. Going back to mid 90s F. Uck. Anyway, how about a Dragonfly for today. This is the first one I had captured this year on my Salvia. That plant is quite popular. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day! Talk to you from Kansas next.

Hi everyone, it's #steamysunday  and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I hope you will share some steamy shots with us. They can be of ANYTHING steamy we like it all, from steam off your coffee or tea, to mist in the mountains to trains. Let's see those steamy shots!
Since I am off doing steamy things in Minnesota, my image for today is of a locomotive here owned by a friend. It's in the style of a William Crooks American type wheel arrangement and is a beautiful 12 inch scale wood or coal fired engine. Hope you enjoy the image! I am off to play with a 14 inch gauge Wagenr. Have a great day! Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there too!

Hi all! So on Thursday I got to go to Tamarac Wildlife Refuge in Minnesota with a couple relatives. I always see something cool when I go there. This year the highlight was a Loon family. I had only seen a Loon twice before and only able to get a photo once and then here was a whole family! In this image I was able to capture one of the young Loons in an adult pose. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello my fellow #bokeholics  it's #FridaysAreBokehlicious  ! My image for today is from one of my favorite places in Kansas. I have to admit, when I moved here I was not very thrilled with being here. Then I found Konza Prairie. It is a Tall Grass Research Station which does public education as well to mostly students but adult groups that visit as well. It's one of the largest areas of Tall Grass Prairie remaining in the US and is just gorgeous. I became a docent out there and for a few years have served n their board for Friends Of. Last weekend was the annual Wildflower Walk for the public and Butterfly Hill put on quite a show. This is a Butterfly Milkweed of the dark orange, almost red variety with lots more of it behind. The pink round flowers are Cats Claw Sensitive Brier and the leaves close up if you touch them. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! Another scorcher in Kansas today, over 100F. Yuck. Cool in Minnesota though, low 80s. My image today is of a little Ladybug I was able to capture wandering around on the Eldeberry blooms. This one was not fully open as you can see. I'm off to go photoing at a wildlife refuge. Hoping for some good sights. Enjoy the image and have a great day!

#waterfallwednesday  

Hi all! I am in Minnesota where it is lovely and cool. Back home though it is 101 F ! UGH Too hot for this early. This is another image of the waterfall just south of where I live back a few weeks when we had rain and cooler weather. It was flowing quite strong after 5 inches of rain in only about 3 days. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Out of the Dark

Hi all! Today I am sharing a photo just because I like it. :-) I even was able to think of a title for it. This is an image of a rose I was given on my birthday shot in sunlight against a black background and is straight out of the camera except for sizing. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day! We are about to boil here, 3 days coming where we will be at 100 degrees already. Sigh It's going to be a long hot dry summer.

#newbirdpoker   #birdpoker  created by +Phil Armishaw and curated this week by +Dominique Morice . The theme is Common Birds in your Country and a sub theme I got was Looking At Me. This is a Blue Jay in my in-laws Ornamental Pear tree that was looking quite cute with the head tilt. I have no idea if it's male or female, hard to tell with these birds. Hope you enjoy the shot and have a great day!

Hi all, it's a hot #steamysunday  here in Kansas but co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I still want to see those steamy shots today! Share your photos of ANYTHING steamy you like, we enjoy it all. Let's see those steamy shots!
My image goes back to Minnesota and large scale locomotives. This is a Challenger locomotive that a friend of mine owns there. It's an articulated locomotive which means it's long but has 2 sets of drivers to negotiate sharp curves, a 4-6 6-4 arrangement of wheels. It's a beautifully detailed locomotive and fun to operate. Here it is going up a rather steep grade on the track on the way back to the loading area. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!
