Looking forward to the Bumble Bees and other bees coming back out.  Hopefully warm weather will be here soon though I hope we don't go straight to summer.  Yes, I know, beggars can't be choosy.  😉  This is a Bumble flying among the Obedient Plant which is not terribly obedient and spreads everywhere.

I shot this image last May and never shared it.  I am getting tired of winter and looking forward to green and other colors than just blah brown.  This is the Geary State Fishing Lake Falls just south of where I live.  We had a lot of spring rain and it made it flow quite nicely.

I captured this Blue jay in the Mulberry tree this past Saturday calling out to it's buddies I think.  It was telling others there was food available.  😀  I have been able to see Blue Jays fairly regularly this winter.  It's been nice, they are usually pretty elusive.

I was playing around this weekend with some photos and I came up with this and was pleased with how it turned out.  A composite image of a rose and frozen bubble.

At Rollag Minnesota where the yearly Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion is held, there is a pond named Gunderson Pond.  It is no relation but it's kind of fun especially when the "Pond Monster" is around.  This year the Monster had a little one.  In this image, 353 pulls a train of passengers past the pond where they can have a view of the "Monsters".

We have had quite a lot of gloomy and dreary days lately that have not really produced much moisture which would at least make it a bit worthwhile.  After one long spell of dreary weather the clouds opened up for a beautiful sunset.  This is a 2 shot panorama and it was taken on the evening of 02/02/2020 which was a major palindrome day and I missed it.  The date reads the same backwards and forwards whether regular or military format.  There will not be another like this for quite some time.

It is Valentine's day today.  Hope it's a good one for all who have a special valentine.  😄  I received a miniature Rose plant from mine last year and this is one of the blooms it produced.  I planted it out in the garden by the large pond and so far so good, it is still living.
