#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.

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!

I was out all day so no time to play on G+ but over on my blog is a cute little guy I saw today.
Posting a bit late today because I was off doing train stuff for the day. The railroad has a pond that lots of dragonflies visit. Today there was also this guy. He was kind of cute sitting under a leaf after he came out of...

+Bee Thursday 

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!

#NewbirdPoker  curated this week by +Dominique Morice 

Hi all! So the game this week is posting birds on the day of the week that corresponds to the letter of their type. I actually had an older image I never shared of one that works. Here is a Mockingbird on Monday. This was sitting in the Walnut tree in the backyard one winter. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

It's #steamysunday  once again where co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I hope you will share some steamy images! They do not have to be trains we like it all! Please tag us and the theme so we can find them though. They can be mist in the mountains to fog in your yard, lets see those steamy shots!
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!

+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!

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!

Hi all! So this image is a bit older one that I captured of an Imported Cabbageworm Butterfly as it was in flight. It was just about to land on the blooms of the Catmint that I have planted in the backyard. Quite the lucky moment captured. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

+Tree Tuesday  #treetuesday  

Hi all! I haven't played in this theme for a while. This is from a trip out to Colorado a while back. A lone tree stands sentinel over the valley in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. I believe it's a dead Cedar tree still beautiful in it's form. Hope you enjoy the image 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!
