This is a fun shot I captured while out walking one afternoon.  This Praying Mantis was crossing the sidewalk and I loved how detailed it's shadow was in comparison to it so I had to capture it.

It's Wildflower Wednesday once again on the Blog.  I hope you checked out my new and improved Kansas Wildflowers by Color pages here on the Blog.  Today's flower is one I did not realize we had in this area of Kansas but has been quite prolific this year.  It is one of my favorites to photograph as I love all the details in it.  This photo is one that is my favorite I have taken of it I think.  This is straight out of the camera with a slight vignette.  This is a bloom from a Queen Ann's Lace.

When we have been out walking in one direction we have heard and then seen Red Tail Hawks.  I think they have a nest to the south in that particular direction.  This past week I was able to get my best shots of one of them ever.  Here is the first after it flew across the road and into this tree.  At first it had it's back to me but then was quite nice and turned around.  😉

This is another image from the dewy morning in Missouri.  It's amazing how quickly spiders make webs and how quickly they disappear as well.  This was part of one on some Parsley growing in their garden.

It's Steamy Sunday once again here on the Blog.  Since things are weird this year and I can't go do steamy things I decided to dig in the archives.  I found some photos I had never shared before.  This is a scan of a film image of Milwaukee Road 261 from a time way back when it came to Topeka Kansas for Railroad Days.  I kind of like the high key look that this gives.  Who knew back in the day that a kind of crappy shot was artsy.  😄

Happy 4th of July everyone in the US!  It's been a weird year so far.  Not sure we will even be able to see fireworks today.  These are from a couple of years ago in Wamego Kansas which is known for their great shows.

Happy Friday and Friday's are Bokehlicious!  Because of that I have the perfect image for today.  I captured this snail on the sidewalk at my in-laws house.  I loved the bokeh that the sidewalk provided in front and behind.
