So one more hot day and then a few nice and cool ones it looks like, yay.  Today's image is a close up of a Bumblebee that was busy working on the blooms of my Butterfly Milkweed plant a couple weeks ago.  He did not seem to care much that I was taking it's photo, it was just furiously digging in the blooms so I was able to get fairly up close and personal.

Happy Summer Solstice!  It's officially here even though we have been feeling like summer for about a week now.  Here are some lovely wild Sunflowers to celebrate the day.

Hot days already, yuck.  Will be interesting to see what July and August are like.  My image today is of a Ladybug I was able to capture on a Milkweed leaf.  It was looking for Aphids and there were some further up the plant.

This is an image that I captured out on Konza Prairie while walking out there in early June.  The Bird Poker theme today was Passerines and I had to look that up but it is the more scientific name for a perching bird.  This Dickcissel certainly fit that very well as it was perched high up in a dead tree.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!  My image today is from the land of steam where every Father's Day weekend they hold Steam School.  This is the locomotive I get to help operate just heading out with our first passenger for Kid's Day which is held on Saturday of that weekend.  This is a basically, 14 inch scale Wagner type locomotive built in 1942 that began life operating at Niagara Falls.

I was able to view a large number of Geese families the other day.  Usually there are no birds on this particular pond but this day there were at least 8 families of Geese floating around, I think more.  This is a shot of 2 of them.

Fridays are all about bokeh for me so I thought I would share this lovely Daisy shot I took recently.  These are growing beside my pond and the bit of pink bokeh is a Water Lily blooming behind them.
