Dreary day today but at least we are getting some Spring showers.  My image today is another of the locomotive I get to fire on in Minnesota as it clears out it's cylinders in the fog after stopping to pick up passengers one morning.  I just found out yesterday that this locomotive will be featured on the cover of Trains Magazine in May, how cool is that!  The 363 is an ex Soo Line switch engine that runs at the Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion each Labor Day weekend.

We finally got rain!  Nice!  Hope it helps the plants and flowers along.  That wind we had been having really dried it out.  I have not seen any colorful sunrises or sunsets for a while to photograph or at least be in a good spot to photograph it.  This is a lovely sunset from back in November that I was able to see and capture.

So I was able to get this image while the Ornamental Pears were blooming during our short Spring.  I liked the bokeh a lot in this image created by the other blossoms.

This is an image I have had around for a bit.  If I knew what these berries were when I originally took the photo I have forgotten.  If anyone knows that would be great if you leave me a comment with an ID.  I just liked the circle shapes on the bottom of each berry and thought they made for an interesting subject.

So spring is springing  up like crazy with our summery weather so Tulips in the ground are quickly coming up.  This image is actually from an arrangement of spring bulbs I got as a gift from my sis-in-law this year.  Red is a very hard color to photograph and get good detail but I was happy with this image and the details I was able to capture in the petals.

So it's officially Spring but having a bit of summer right off but hopefully back to the correct weather now.  I captured this image a few weeks ago of this Nuthatch that has been visiting one of my feeders.  I love to watch these birds walking face first down the tree trunks.  Too cute.  I caught this one when it posed for me for just a moment.

My image today is a bit different since I am not into spiders much, they creep me out.  I was able to get a shot of this one without getting too close.  😀  I've had this shot around for a while but never shared it.  It seemed to fit for a theme on G+ today so I thought, why not.  It's a good nature shot.  LOL  So I hope it doesn't creep you out to much.
