It's been nice to see the sun these days and that the days are a bit warmer. I was playing with this Orchid image yesterday instead of doing Christmas things. 😁 I changed the background to a black one because I think it shows off the flowers better.

My image for today is from the morning of my train ride on the Cumbres & Toltec Railway back at the end if May. This was only the third day the railroad had been in operation for the year and it was a beautiful, clear day for a train ride. This image is at the Chama New Mexico station. They were prepping the locomotive to move and hook on to the train that would pull us to Antonito Colorado.

Here is a view of the Sunflower field I found in late August still in lovely bloom. When I was looking through the images I captured I found that this one had a couple of insects in it as well. There is a bee and also what is likely a small butterfly as I saw a few sitting on the heads while walking around.

Yikes, what a week. Very glad it's Friday. We have seen the sun a bit this week so that has been a plus at least. I captured this image in Missouri while there for Thanksgiving. I love watching the Blue-jays and trying to capture them. They do not sit still very long when they are close up. I have seen them sit for a long time far away. They seem quite camera shy, so I count myself lucky when I can get a good shot of them.

We finally saw the sun today, a week later. Now it will be gone again for awhile. Sigh. Nice while it lasted. These are some white Asters that are on my property blooming this autumn. Usually you see the pink/purple variety so it was nice to find these. They are a wildflower found her in Kansas.
Posting late, sigh. An image from the Great Bend Air Show I went to this past September. One of my favorite WWII airplanes making a fly by of the crowd, a P51 Mustang fighter plane.

We have had such dreary weather for several days now, it's getting old. I want to see the sun. I decided to share something bright and colorful since it is so dreary. This is a Monarch butterfly visiting a Zinnia flower in my garden this past summer.

Today's image goes back to a much warmer day in late May once again. I was riding through the New Mexico landscape on the way to Colorado aboard the Cumbres & Toltec Railway.

It's the first day of December and we are having rain. Interesting weather this autumn. We have had more snow already this autumn then we had all last year. I think Mother Nature is making up for our drought this summer. I took this image during the lovely clingy snow we had in early November. This is another view of my pond in snow with, what I thought were, some interesting reflections in the water.
