 TGIF  Captured another Honeybee enjoying the Grape Hyacinths in the yard.  Bee butt image!  😁  Really glad to see Honeybees around.  Sharing this one for today with the nice bokeh background because Friday's Are Bokehlicious as well.

 My Tulips are blooming, at least the ones not eaten by whatever, probably rabbits.  Grrrr  I need to construct more cages for my flowers.  Sigh.  Anyway, this is a macro of one of them.  Love it's colors with the red highlights.

 It's Wildflower Wednesday!  Things are really starting to bloom in my area of Kansas.  This is a close up of a Johnny Jump Up which is a relative of the Pansy.  They are considered a weed but I think they are rather lovely.

 I was on a bike ride through some pretty rural areas of mostly farm fields on Sunday.  In the corner of one of them I spotted this Killdeer walking around.  I had brought my camera along so stopped and took some images.  It seemed very unconcerned that I was there and even went and sat on it's nest I am pretty sure so probably a female.  I am wondering if it is because I stayed on my bike and did not move around much while taking photos.  Thisis with a Zoom so I wasn't as close as it looks.

 I still have a couple of good snowflakes to share that I was able to get this past February.  Here is one of them.  It had a bit of an odd shape to it but I was able to capture it clearly.

 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog.  Today's image is of the same locomotive as last week at the B&O Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.  Obviously this is a front view of this beautiful old locomotive.  You can see the ceiling pretty well which I haven't mentioned much but the roundhouse is just gorgeous.  The wood ceiling and the floor are beautiful as is the turntable which can be operated by just one person it is so well balanced.  Part of the ceiling had collapsed in 2003 but fortunately this very old locomotive was not in it's normal place at the time so was not damaged.  This is the William Mason and was built in 1856.

 Today's image could have gone on Wednesday as well.  While out on a bikeride on Sunday I came across this field.  It looks purposely planted but all that lovely color is coming from a wildflower very muc considered to be a weed called Henbit.  It made for a lovely view.  I only had my zoom lens with me so the is a panorama stiched from 5 images.  It's best viewed large.
