Well it's another #FridaysAreBokehlicious  and Friday in general thank goodness because it has been the craziest week! Yeesh!
I finally had a large butterfly in my yard this summer. A lovely male Tiger Swallowtail was on my my Buddleja or Butterfly Bush and I captured it with some brick bokeh. :-) Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! Will try to catch up with you all this evening.

Hi, it's #steamysunday  and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your steamy shots of anything steamy you like, it does not have to be trains. We like anything from steam off your coffee to mist in a mountain. Let's see those steamy shots!
My image for today is of trains and goes back into the archives to a cool gathering of trains I was able to go to in Michigan. I was able to attend a night shoot and this is one of the images from that where I tried to get a different perspective than the others that were there. You can see 3 well known US locomotives in this shot, the Pere Marquette 1225, the Southern Pacific Daylight and the nickel Plate 765 are the 3 on the end. Locomotive 110 is from the Little river railroad and Number 1 was a traveling tank style engine. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello! I haven't shared a sunrise for a while so I thought I would share this colorful one. I saw this on my way to work one morning about a couple weeks ago now. Due to construction I am having to detour a couple of miles out of my way but on this particular morning I had quite the lovely view. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

It's finally #FridaysAreBokehlicious  all my fellow #Bokeholics  ! It's been another long week. I am beginning to think things are never going to settle down. I am finally seeing a good amount of butterflies and even a few Monarchs. This is one on my Autumn Sedum which is quite the nature magnet. Hope you enjoy it and happy Friday everyone!

Hi all! I don't share many manipulations but I liked this one so here you go. :-) I was shooting these bees and was disappointed when the clearest one was partly cut off and wanted to use it anyway so moved it into this photo. Hope you enjoy my little effort and have a great day!

#NewbirdPoker  created by +Phil Armishaw and curated this week by +Marilyn Benham 

Hi all! One of the shots I was able to get in Michigan of this lovely Egret in Michigan, I believe, qualifies for all the requirements of this week's game. The theme is: Standing, In or Near Water, Side View, Peaceful, and white on it. This Egret was fishing in a small river in Michigan and let me get several shots of it one evening. Hope you enjoy my hand in the game and have a great day!

#macromonday  

Hi all! Busy start to the week. My image today is another Ladybug I was able to capture. I had more of these around than usual this year and they were fun to see and capture. They were especially enjoying the aphids that were on the Milkweed that I planted for the butterflies. Glad something enjoyed them. That's where I capture this one. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

My image today goes back to the Henry Ford Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan. This is No. 7 passing their great wooden coaling and water towers on it's way past the round house. I decided to go for a vintage look with it. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#ruralsaturday  

So I may not have a planted Sunflower field around me but the wild Sunflowers have really been blooming like crazy recently. I took this image this past week of a really big group of them against the stormy sky we had been experiencing most of the week. There are several varieties of Sunflowers and these, I believe, are Plains Sunflowers. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#FridaysAreBokehlicious  

Hello all my co #Bokeholics  ! It's a dreary day here in Kansas once again but I have a lovely bokeh image to share for today. My Sedum is starting to bloom and once again it is a butterfly magnet. Here are a small Cotton Square Borer and a Painted Lady that I captured the other day. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day! It's finally Friday of a very crap week.

#NewBirdPoker  curated this week by +Marilyn Benham 

This weeks theme is to share your favorite image and explain why. This is one of my favorites, I have several for different reasons. This one I really like because Herons have always been very elusive to me. I don't have the fancy birding equipment and so if I get a close shot of a bird I am thrilled. I had a 300 zoom on at the time and this bird was so close at times I had it down to 70 and it was too close to get the whole bird in. I couldn't believe it was so close and didn't seem to care much that there were people around as it walked along a beach in Michigan. Hope you enjoy the image as well and have a great day!

#macromonday  

Morning! Life sure isn't calming down much for me to get caught up with you all. Having to do in spurts. :-) My image for today is of a Wildflower that grows rather profusely in our area from the Poinsettia family called Snow On the Mountain. I played around with the image to make it a bit more artsy. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hey all, it's #steamysunday  once again! Co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your images of ANYTHING steamy you like, we enjoy it all, it does not have to be trains. Let's see those steamy shots today!
My image is from this past weekend when I was in Minnesota doing steamy things. This is the former Soo Line locomotive that I get to fire on one foggy morning. It was really creating a great cloud of steam from the cylinders as it pulled out. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

I finally can play. Got together a couple of images. The Theme this week was Multi-colored and you could have M/F pairings. Here are a Cardinal couple. Female on the left and male on the right. Hope you enjoy my late entry to the game.

#FridaysAreBokehlicious  

It's finally Friday and this is for my fellow #Bokeholics  ! I shot this a couple weeks ago today. It was my first Buckeye butterfly sighting for the year. It was sitting on a Snow On the Mountain bloom. Hope you all enjoy it and have a better day than me. This one isn't starting out so well again. Sigh.

+Bee Thursday 

Morning. Still having crazy days. And then I forgot the picture on the first try. SIGH Here is a quick post and run again, sorry I will catch up one of these days. I captured this Honey Bee in flight earlier this spring. I was amazed when looking through photos that it was so sharp. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

#waterfallwednesday  

So how do you post Publicly on the New G+? I tried to do a post with that and it said I "shared it privately".

Posting very late today as I did not have the greatest day. Then that didn't go well. First day back at work and ugh. I took this shot on vacation last year to South Dakota. This is Bridal Veil Falls in Spearfish Canyon. Hope you enjoy it and hope you had a good day.

+Grass Tuesday 

Hi all! A quick post and run because I'm heading home today with a long drive. Will have to catch up with you all later in the week. I'll leave with this image today from Minnesota once again, back in June of some lovely pink grass seed heads that were beside one of the 10,000 lakes. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all! It's a cool misty morning here in Minnesota today. Should have been yesterday for Steamy Sunday. :-) This is an image I got here in Minnesota last June. A lovely little golden Dragonfly on a leaf of a Milkweed at Tamarac Wildlife Refuge. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Happy #steamysunday  from the land of steam! Co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I (when I have a better internet connection) want to see your steamy shots. It can be ANYTHING steamy it does not have to be trains, we like it all so let's see those steamy shots!
My image today goes back in the archives to when I got to see and chase Nickel Plate 765 owned by the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society. It is a beautifully restored locomotive and it was great to get to see it. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#waterbirdwednesday  

Hi all! The last time I was in Minnesota I was able to see and capture this lovely Swan family. I saw these at Tamarac Wildlife Refuge. The water was quite wavy because it was so windy that day. They seemed to be enjoying it though. Hope you enjoy the image as well and are having a great day.

+Grass Tuesday 

Morning! I took this image on Friday while I was out and about where I live. The road construction has taken out a majority of the good wildflower areas but there was still a bit left. This is an image of a grass seed head that I found rather interesting. I am not good with my grass ID so not sure what type but I love the curve and whispyness of it. Edit, it is called Green Foxtail according to a website on native Kansas grasses. Hope you enjoy it as well and have a great day. Today starts the busy time of the travel and participating in the Steam Threshers Reunion at Rollag MN so not sure how much time I will be around in the coming days. Have a great few days!

Hi all! I don't have anything to play for #NewBirdPoker  this week but still wanted to share a bird shot that I am proud of and forgot I had gotten till I was going through my photos. This is one of my best ever shots I have gotten of a Redwing Blackbird. It was sitting on a dried Cattail in a marshy area in Minnesota and just posed so nicely for me for several shots. I am headed back up that way this week so thought it was appropriate to post for that reason as well. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hey hey, it's #steamysunday  once again! Co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I would like to see ANYTHING steamy you care to post, we enjoy it all. Fog, mist, steam off your coffee or tea, it does not have to be trains we just want to see those steamy shots!
My images are mostly trains because that's what I love. This photo goes back to a visit to the Durango & Silverton in southwestern Colorado. This is the train heading to Silverton on the famous Highline. Because of the narrow ledge the train is allowed to only go quite slow so you get a nice view of the Animas River down below. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello, it's a wet Thursday morning here. We just got over an inch of rain. This has been a weird wet cool August. My image for today is from earlier this year when the Honey Bees were busy on the Salvia. I captured these 3 busily gathering pollen. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Today doesn't feel very steamy here, we are only at 60F right now. Lovely after all the heat we had. My image today is a monochrome treatment of Henry Ford's No 7 locomotive from Greenfield Village in Michigan. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Morning, it's a beautiful cool day here in Kansas which is quite odd but I like it! Last week I shared a Sunflower field, how about a Sunflower close up? This is one that I grew in my garden and glad I did since I could not find any fields around. This variety is obviously one of the red types. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#NewBirdPoker  curated this week by +Dusty Gedge with the theme being Vegetarians. He had to remind me which birds were strictly vegetarians and one of them I forgot was this bird that I was able to capture Sunday Morning. It is not the clearest and has a bit of canvas texture in some areas because I shot it through a screen. This little Hummingbird was eating at the feeder and then coming to rest on this branch in the tree. It sat there for a good while. Not sure what type it is with it's all white breast but it was a cutie. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! I probably won't be around much as we will not be home this evening but will catch up tomorrow.

#NewBirdPoker  curated this week by +Dusty Gedge with the theme being Vegetarians. He had to remind me which birds were strictly vegetarians and one of them I forgot was this bird that I was able to capture Sunday Morning. It is not the clearest and has a bit of canvas texture in some areas because I shot it through a screen. This little Hummingbird was eating at the feeder and then coming to rest on this branch in the tree. It sat there for a good while. Not sure what type it is with it's all white breast but it was a cutie. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! I probably won't be around much as we will not be home this evening but will catch up tomorrow.

#waterfallwednesday  

It's Wednesday and what a crazy long week it's been already. Summer break at work was not long enough at all. Sigh I have not shared a waterfall in a while so thought I'd like to see something beautiful and soothing today. This is Roughlock Falls in Spearfish Canyon in South Dakota. I took this image on a trip there last year that somehow seems a lifetime ago now. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Happy Tuesday! :-) When I was on vacation this summer we visited my sister-in-law in Lafayette, Indiana. Her new home is right by the CSX rail line and trains run by fairly regularly. I can't believe I only took a couple shots the whole time. I use the excuse that it rained a lot of the time. Anyway, here is one of the decent images I was able to get. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

#monochromemonday   #macromonday  

Hi all! Having a wacky busy day today. I was trying to grow Teasels where I live in Kansas. This is the third year they were in and I finally got blooms on them. However, the new roadwork they are doing took them out so I will have to try again when they are done. Fortunately I was able to get a few photos before they bulldozed over them. I processed this in B&W because I thought it showed off the texture well. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Happy Saturday! As I mentioned in a past post, I have not been able to find a sunflower field near me this year. I went back in the archives and found an image I had never shared of one I had visited in the past at sunset. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hey hey we're the #Bokeholics  and we just wanna #bokeh  around cause it's #FridaysAreBokehlicious  ! You can probably tell who I saw on TV last night. :-) Anyway, here's a 12 Spot Dragonfly that I caught hanging out on the hubster's truck antenna a couple weekends ago. It had some great bokeh going on so it was perfect to share for today. Hope you enjoy it and have a great start to your weekend!

Hello! It's going to be another hot one today before it hopefully cools off this evening for the weekend. Thursday's seems to be the day for butterflies for me. I shot this one this past weekend and I need help with the ID if anyone knows. It had a definite blue cast to it but does not match any of the Blue Butterflies I could find. My best guess is that it is a Dusky Wing but it seems a bit light for that. The under-wing pattern was not like the ones shown for the typical blue types. Anyway, it was on some Rose of Sharon buds and I liked the minimal look to it. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#waterbirdwednesday  

Hi all! Hot and humid here in the Midwest. Nice to have the rain, not fond of the humidity though. Today I am sharing another Egret image I was able to capture in Michigan. This Egret was fishing in the stream near a lovely old mill in the town of Dundee. I watched and took photos of it for quite a while till it was scared off by the noise of firecrackers that were fairly close by. It was on the 4th of July. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#macromonday  

Hi all! We had a lovely cool weekend and so I was outside most of the time working in the yard. My Milkweed plant has a bunch of Aphids and so I had several Ladybugs enjoying a feast. I captured this one and even came up with a title: On the Precipice . Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day. We are having our last cooler one, back into the mid to high 90s tomorrow. Sigh
