Happy new week everyone! I haven't shared a butterfly in a while and I got my first photos of them this weekend since we had temps at 80 F. It was windy to go along with that as well but that's Kansas. :-) So I was able to capture this Red Admiral Butterfly on the Lilac blooms. Red Admiral's are pretty common in Kansas and usually one of the first butterflies to be sighted in the Spring. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! Happy Earth Day! I hope you will take time today to think about how you can do something to help the earth today. In some parts of the world it's Spring and planting season. Try plants this year that are native to your area and that will help support bees and butterflies. They don't have to be expensive either. Even annuals like Zinnias are good and relatively inexpensive as you can plant them from seed. They stay blooming into the late Autumn until a good freeze when other plants have stopped flowering. As you can see from my photo today, butterflies take advantage of this as this Painted Beauty is doing late last Autumn in my garden.
Hope you enjoy the image and have a great Earth Day!

Hi all, my image today is for #JoinInDaily #Join Daily curated by +Johnny Wills and today's theme is Tails. This is a young Great Plains Skink. When they are born they are all black with bright blue tails and as they grow to adulthood fade to the more mottled look and loose the blue color to their tails. Skinks are also able to detach their tails when caught by them at will and then grow a new one back in approximately 3 months. A great form of defense for them. This Skink is one of the more common ones found here in Kansas. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello! A double bloom Columbine macro image from my garden for this morning. Fun facts: The genus is Aquilegia which comes from the Latin term for eagle of aguila because the shape of the flower head reminds of an eagle's claw. Columbine comes from the Latin term for dove because the inverted flower looks like 5 doves clustered together. It's a lovely plant and this version is the state flower of Colorado. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello all. A couple of weeks ago, I went to the Overland Park Arboretum in Kansas. It's a beautiful place to walk and see a variety of plants and flowers. These large Allium flowers were in bloom in front of one of the waterfall features there. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, it's #SteamySunday and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your shots of ANYTHING steam, mist fog related, you like. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them and let's see those steamy shots!
My image today goes to Rollag, Minnesota and the Wagner 15 inch Large Scale steam locomotive that I get to help operate. It is coal fired and operates for Kid's Day coming up on Father's day weekend and also during the Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion over Labor Day Weekend. A fun locomotive to operate. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#FridaysAreBokehlicious has arrived finally! I thought I would share something different than flowers today for my fellow #Bokeholics . I think this bird was too big for the #NewBirdPoker theme this week. It is an Eastern Phoebe I believe from help from some G+ peeps with some creamy bokeh behind.

Hello, playing once again in #BeeThursday +Bee Thursday . I love to capture these guys in flight but it takes a lot of patience to get them in focus as well. You have to watch and anticipate where they will move to next. This one was busy collecting pollen from the Grape Hyacinths early this Spring. He's got a nice pollen sac on his back leg. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! It's almost the weekend. :-)

Hi all. This is for #JoinInDaily #JoinDaily curated by +Johnny Wills and the theme today is Something You Consider Old. I have had this shot around for a while that I played with for a more artsy feel that I felt has the right fit . This is an old farm cultivator that was sitting on their home property. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! If you play in the Join Daily theme, share only one image per day please.

Happy new week! I love Columbine flowers. I have great difficulty in getting them to come back every year except one variety which is kind of wild. I am trying again in a new location with this one and pink variety as well. If it doesn't work again I am giving up. In the mean time, here is a macro of one of the blooms. Hope you enjoy it and have great day!

#NewBirdPoker curated this week by +Jim Robertson . Hello, I had another shot I had been wanting to share for a while. I had mentioned it a while back when another Blue Jay was shared by the curator so I decided to share something else. I got this one sitting in the tree fairly close at my In-laws home. Oh, the theme this week was Wildcard so I was able to play a couple of times as it was just a favorite shot. Thanks for the fun theme Jim! Hope you all enjoy it and have a great day!

Edit: So I captured this guy on Saturday in the pond at the Overland Park Arboretum. I believe it is a Western Painted Turtle from it's coloring.

Hi all, happy hot Tuesday, 85 here again today. This image is for #NewBirdPoker curated this week by +Jim Robertson with the theme of Wild Card. I am sharing this bird that I was able to capture last week because I need an ID please. I looking in my bird book but I am having trouble matching it for sure. It was sitting on the branches of the Sycamore and swooping down into the grass. At one point it came up with a worm that it ate. It didn't seem to mind that I was fairly close to it as well. It looks like a type of Flycatcher but not sure if they eat worms as well. Any help in IDing would be great! Thanks. Hope you all enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello, this is for #JoinInDaily #JoinDaily curated by +Johnny Wills . The theme today is Rectangles and I thought this shot of Chicago looking out towards Navy Pier on Lake Michigan fit the bill. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!
We are having summer already with highs around 85 that will be stressing out my new plants. Bet this summer is going to be hot one too.

Hello! I have a hand for today's theme of #BirdPoker that is being curated this week by +Marilyn Benham . Her theme for today is Nuthatches, Titmouse, and Chickadee. I captured this Titmouse this past winter when it posed long enough on a branch outside the window in between getting seed from the feeder. They rarely sit still so I got lucky with a few shots. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hello! Today's daily theme for #JoinInDaily #JoinDaily curated by +Johnny Wills is what you consider "A Beautiful Photo". For me, living here in Kansas, the place where I find beauty is when I am out on the Konza Prairie. This is an image of Butterfly Hill on Konza Prairie that is in bloom with Butterfly Milkweed. It's a beautiful sight in early June when it has so much color to it. Konza Prairie does an annual Wildflower Walk where you get to walk certain areas of the Konza that aren't normally open to the public. This year the walk takes place on June 4. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

My image is another of the beautiful No. 7 pulling out of one of the stations at Greenfield Village of the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn Michigan. It's a coal fired locomotive that is just wonderfully kept and is one of 3 locomotives that run around the park all day. They run one for a couple of weeks, then it goes in for maintenance while they run another. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Happy Saturday! It's a rainy one here. My image today might brighten up a dreary day. This is my contribution to #JoinInDaily #JoinDaily curated by +Johnny Wills and the theme today is At Least 40% Yellow. This is a macro image of a Heliopsis bloom from my garden last summer. Looking forward to having these bloom again this year as the butterflies seemed to enjoy them. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, we are on the downhill slide of the week thank goodness. This is another image of the waterfall here in my area of Kansas that I got this Spring. This waterfall is at the Geary State Lake and is a good 30 feet if not more high and still amazes me that it is near me. I was there in the late afternoon and I like how the sun's rays were captured in the image. This was a 3 second exposure hot with my new ND filter. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.

It's Hump Day, yay, it's been quite the week. My image today is for #JoinDaily #JoinInDaily curated by +Johnny Wills and with the day's theme of Females. This is a female Cardinal on a windy winter day this past February, the Exif data is wrong. She was sitting out in the Mulberry tree just outside the window and posed quite nicely for me even though the wind was ruffling her up a bit. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! My image today is of the old Dutch Mill in Wamego, KS where they have a Tulip Festival every year. The day I was there the Tulips were really blooming. This is actually a 3 shot vertical panorama because I only had my 70mm with me at the time. I have shot this old Mill before and I noticed since my last photo of it, the Red Bud trees that used to be in front of it have been taken down. Not sure if it was due to damage from hail or what. Anyway this Mill and the Tulips in front does make for an interesting sight in Kansas. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

This is for #NewBirdPoker curated this week by +Ramprakash Ram Mohan with the theme of Showcasing birds in their habitat. This is a male Dickcissel as noted by the small V on it's yellow chest. The Dickcissel is fairly common to my area and can usually be seen out on the Prairie surveying it's territory or singing and it's name comes from it's song. I captured this one a while back on Konza Prairie on an evening walk.. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

My image goes back to Cass Mountain and Scenic Railway in West Virginia. I took this shot while riding the train. Cass is a former logging railway and takes you through some beautiful countryside. Here a Shay type locomotive is pushing our train up the mountainside. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! Happy Earth Day! I hope you will take time today to think about how you can do something to help the earth today. In some parts of the world it's Spring and planting season. Try plants this year that are native to your area and that will help support bees and butterflies. They don't have to be expensive either. Even annuals like Zinnias are good and relatively inexpensive as you can plant them from seed. They stay blooming into the late Autumn until a good freeze when other plants have stopped flowering. As you can see from my photo today, butterflies take advantage of this as this Painted Beauty is doing late last Autumn in my garden.
Hope you enjoy the image and have a great Earth Day!

+Bee Thursday #BeeThursday Hello! As I mentioned, with the warmer weather, nature is just appearing all over. :-) I captured this Green Metallic Bee which I believe is a female of the species Agapostemon Splendens because it has a mostly green butt (abdomen) where the male is striped yellow and black in most varieties. I captured it enjoying the blooms of my Star of Bethlehem flowers which bloom in the Spring and were doing so for Easter this year. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Happy Hump Day! We are halfway through the week now. Yay. :-) Since the warm, almost summer like weather has arrived, various creatures are starting to re-appear. I captured this Ladybug on a Tulip bloom in my garden this past weekend. Great to see these little guys around again and nice of this one to pose for me. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all! I went to Wamego Kansas this past weekend which is known for it's Tulip festival. The Tulips were at their peak and just beautiful everywhere. I captured this macro of ones that I thought were a rather unique color. I don't remember seeing burgundy colored ones before so I had to take a few photos. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

This is the station at the New Mexico end of my favorite railroad, the Cumbres & Toltec that travels from Antonito Colorado to Chama. I captured it on a summer evening the last time we were there. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, it's #steamySunday where co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your steamy shots! We enjoy ANYTHING steam related like fog and mist as well. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them. Let's see those steamy shots today!
My image today goes once again to the engine I get to help fire on at the Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion. This locomotive, 353, an ex-Soo Line switch engine is on the cover of Trains Magazine for it's May Issue featuring steam locomotives at threshing shows. Hope you enjoy the image of it one foggy morning last September and have a great day!

Happy Saturday! So I was out yesterday and trying to photograph this moss that was growing in this one area like crazy due to all the recent rain we have been having. This guy came into my shot so I decided to try and get a photo. Found out a few moments later that it was a Jumpy Spider so glad I got a couple of shots before it started doing that. LOL I'm not all that fond of spiders so I was proud of myself to get this close. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#BeeThursday +Bee Thursday

Hi all! What a day already! Sheesh. Thank goodness it's technically Friday for me as we have off tomorrow. So my image today was a nice sight. With the warm weather we have had the Honey Bees are back and out and about. I captured this one collecting pollen from the Grape Hyacinths in the yard. I captured this one as it was zooming in on one of them. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! Happy Wednesday! I have to post and run today, I have a conference for work to go to all day. Hope to catch up with you this evening. I went to the waterfall near me again last week since we had more rain and also because I had messed up some shots I took the first time. It was flowing rather nicely and this is one of the images I got. It's a 3 second exposure with an ND filter. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Happy Tuesday and this is for #TreeTuesday curated by +Ralph Mendoza and +David R Robinson. The Crabapple trees were blooming quite profusely around town. We had a bit of a freeze this morning so it will be interesting to see how everything did with that. Anyway this tree is in the city park in my town and gave quite the nice show of color. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Happy new week everyone! I haven't shared a butterfly in a while and I got my first photos of them this weekend since we had temps at 80 F. It was windy to go along with that as well but that's Kansas. :-) So I was able to capture this Red Admiral Butterfly on the Lilac blooms. Red Admiral's are pretty common in Kansas and usually one of the first butterflies to be sighted in the Spring. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, #SteamySunday has arrived and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your steamy photos! We like ANYTHING steam, mist, fog, etc related, it does not have to be trains. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them. Let's see those steamy shots today!
My image for today goes back to Cass Mountain Scenic Railway where they have one of the few Heisler type locomotives still operating. Here it is sitting warmed up and waiting in case needed to run that day. These were logging type locomotives that did not do as well as the Shays or Climax possibly because it came later. Only about 625 of them were built and they were manufactured up until around WWII where the Climax stopped production in 1928. It's cylinders were at 45 degree angles instead of the 25 degree on a Climax. They were built in Erie Pennsylvania and named for Charles L Heisler. Hope you enjoy... more »

HI all, happy Saturday! This image is for #JoinInDaily curated by +Johnny Wills and the theme today is Eight. This is an attempt at image stacking and I see I should have taken more images but I am still learning how this works. It works for the theme as there are 8 raindrops in focus. LOL These are Columbine leaves captured just after one of the recent rains and this is 3 images stacked. Hope you enjoy the photo and have a great day!
