A five day holiday from work, nice.  This is an older image I got while I was up near Milford Lake one day awhile back.  This Red Tail Hawk was flying overhead and I was able to capture a few shots of it.  In this one it looks like it was checking me out.

I mentioned how the Maple trees in our area were putting on a show.  This is a friend's red Maple that I thought was quite lovely. I took this shot laying on the ground looking up the trunk.

My image today is of a Columbine flower that I had growing in my garden this year.  I isolated one of the blooms and shot it against a white background.  I love Columbine and the wild ones do very well for me but the more specialized ones with bigger blooms, like this pink variety, I have to find just the right spot.

Today's image goes back to summer and Rollag, Minnesota and the 14/15 inch scale Wagner locomotive I get to help operate.  Here a friend of mine is running a group around.  Much progress has been made on the Roundhouse and turntable which are able to be seen in this image.  It will be a great place to store the locomotive and train.

I took this image of a lovely colorful evening sky over the Konza Prairie this past June.  This was looking to the north from the barn in an image I shared a few weeks ago or so.  The light was lovely on one of the hills along with the pinky sky.

Today felt a bit like late summer, in the 60s in the morning and 70s later.  Weird weather.  My image today is of a plant that gives our area some nice color in the autumn.  This is Virginia Creeper or Five Leaf Ivy back-lit in the afternoon sun.  It gets it's name from it's habit of growing up tree trunks like it has here.

I saw this flower at a friend's home and thought it was quite lovely looking.  It reminded me of a Columbine but I knew it was not that.  I found out it is called Angel Earring Fuchsia.  I may have to try to grow it this spring though it seems it is picky about light and water.  Needs to be damp and in shade.  It will take heat so that's good for my area.
