I mention wanting rain and our new land and a pond I have that I am restoring after it sat dormant for about 10 years and became over run with Cattails and weeds.  This is an image I took this spring when the Crab-apple tree was blooming and I had removed several Bobcat loads of cattails.  I still needed to weed the waterfall area on the left at this point.  I hope to get it running but the weather this year has other ideas like 100 degree temps in June and no rain.  We have a chance that it will change this week so fingers crossed.

Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there who visit my Blog.  
I shot this image at around sunset on Friday evening of Memorial Day weekend.  I was at the yearly Steam Up that a friend of mine holds and running my Mimi Live Steam locomotive on his high line track.  It's great for when you get older, you don't have to get down on your knees to operate.  😄

I took this image the evening of the Wildflower Walk out at Konza Prairie.  We were just finishing up the last part of the walk and were treated to a lovely sunset view.  A great end to a very nice evening.

Echinacea or Cone Flowers grow wild in my area but I have some planted in various gardens at home.  This is one flower beginning to bloom the other day and I liked the bokeh behind.

This is a bit of an artsy shot of some baby Maple leaves.  I captured these early this Spring.

This is another of the Condor photos I was able to get in the Grand Canyon last year.  Not the best image I have ever taken but I was excited to get it.  Also to have it be clear.  😅  You have to look though, it blends in really well.

The National Bi-plane Fly-In was held a couple of weekends ago in my town.  This is the 6th year for it I think and this plane has been an attraction in several of them.  It's a beautiful 1929 Waco, formally owned by Mohawk Airways which used it to fly honeymooners over Niagara Falls.
