 It's Wildflower Wednesday!  This is a new one that I had not seen before or if I did, did not realize what it was.  This is Macoun's Hedge Bindweed.  It has larger flowers than Field Bindweed and is not as aggressive.  It usually blooms May to July here in Kansas.

 We have had a Carolina Wren staying around all winter.  I heard it chirping, they have quite a distinctive and loud chirp, and I watched it for a moment before I decided I liked the light and went to get my camera.  It stayed there for a while longer while I got some shots.  They are so cute the way they kind of bob up and down while they chirp too.

 It's March!  The year seems to be going fairly quickly, Spring will be here soon.  Just 2 weeks ago we had very cold temps and snow, seems so long ago in a way.  I captured this group in a 21 image focus stack during that bitter cold snap.

 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog.  Playing around with the Pencil technique again, this time with the Union Pacific Big Boy locomotive.  This is an image I had captured as it made it's way across the fields just west of my town here in Kansas back in 2019.  It was very cool to be able to see this huge locomotive come through our area.

 Today's image was taken on a walk in January at sunset.  There is an old windmill on some property that makes for some picturesque sunset photos.

  TGIF  Today's image is of the same butterfly that I posted last week.  This image shows why it got it's name Question Mark. If you click on the image and look at it larger you can see a light colored mark in about the middle of it's bottom wing and it looks like a sideways question mark. I also shared this picture today because I love the bokeh in the background, especially the bubbly bokeh in the upper middle and Friday's Are Bokehlicious here on the Blog!

 I am looking forward to summer and flowers in the garden.  That is where I got this shot of one of my Roses in bloom looking rather perfect.  This would have been a good Friday image because of the beautiful bokeh in the image but bokeh is good any day.  😄
