I Captured this image on the evening of the Annual Wildflower Walk out at Konza Prairie.  This Great Spangled Fritillary was visiting the Butterfly Milkweed and stopped for a moment so I could get a photo.

Happy Summer Solstice, enjoy the longest light day of the year!  While I was in Minnesota last week I got to photograph a couple of Bald Eagles in flight near where We camp at while there.  I had only ever seen one in this area a few years back as we were leaving, it was almost flying alongside us.  I see them more north usually.  I took a bunch of photos and a few turned out fairly well so here is one of them.

I was in Minnesota last week and the state flower was in bloom at Tamarac Wildlife Refuge.  There was a large group of these pink Lady Slippers off to the side of the road into the refuge.  This is a 2 image focus stack of a rather lovely trio.

This is an older image that I found and liked and decided to share.  The General's Mounted Color Guard puts on demonstrations at times of riding and shooting skills from back when Fort Riley was a Cavalry Post.  This was one such event that was held at the Spring Valley Site of the Geary County Historical Society.

I mention wanting rain and our new land and a pond I have that I am restoring after it sat dormant for about 10 years and became over run with Cattails and weeds.  This is an image I took this spring when the Crab-apple tree was blooming and I had removed several Bobcat loads of cattails.  I still needed to weed the waterfall area on the left at this point.  I hope to get it running but the weather this year has other ideas like 100 degree temps in June and no rain.  We have a chance that it will change this week so fingers crossed.

Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there who visit my Blog.  
I shot this image at around sunset on Friday evening of Memorial Day weekend.  I was at the yearly Steam Up that a friend of mine holds and running my Mimi Live Steam locomotive on his high line track.  It's great for when you get older, you don't have to get down on your knees to operate.  😄

I took this image the evening of the Wildflower Walk out at Konza Prairie.  We were just finishing up the last part of the walk and were treated to a lovely sunset view.  A great end to a very nice evening.
