Got really cold last night, 20s.  Flowers are probably all gone now.  Sigh.  Anyway, my image today is from the Great Bend Air Show a few weekends ago.  While I was horribly disappointed to not get to see the B-29s fly I did get to see a neat show.  The highlight for me were these two which are a couple of my favorite WWII fighter planes.  In the foreground is a P-40 Warhawk painted in Flying Tiger style and in the rear is Gunfighter, a P-51 Mustang.  These pilots were good as you can see from how close together they were flying and were quite something to watch.

So winter came already, woke up to about an inch of snow!  I am sure my flowers are all gone now.  Sigh.  My image today is of some lovely horses I saw in Minnesota eating in a row.   😃

Every now and then I like to get back to my roots of Black & White photography.  I thought this image was a good one to do that with.  This was at our lunch stop on the Cumbres & Toltec at Osier Colorado.  The train from Antonito heading to Chama had pulled in and I was photographing it.  You can see an old cattle pen off to the side.

I seem to be in a flower mood lately, probably because they are all going to be going away in a couple of days when it is supposed to freeze over night.  This is the color version of the Marigold I shared a little while back.  I thought it looked rather dramatic even in color and you can see it had a visitor of some kind.

A cold and rainy morning again. Winter is coming quickly.  I hope these guys got the heck out of here and went on their way south.  I saw them on Tuesday I think out in the rain.  I keep saying, of all the flowers I plant the one I find them on the most is the cheaper Zinnias.  Glad they enjoy them because I do as well.  This Monarch posed so lovely on one of the Zinnias for me so I just had to take a photo of it and share it.

Well we are not getting much of an autumn it seems like.  The temps this weekend are looking more like winter.  I think it's going to be a long one.  Sigh.  The yellow Water Lily at my new pond has been lovely.  I captured this image last week in between the rain which was great because of the drought we have been having.

I captured this image in Minnesota when I was there in early September.  I love this flower, it's very small and delicate looking and looks to be part of the Orchid family but is actually part of the Impatiens family.  It is called a Jewelweed or a Touch Me Not because after it blooms if you brush up against it the seed will drop out.
