This is the other color African Daisy/Osteospermum/Spoon Flower than I had this summer.  I love the unique petal shape this flower has.  I have kept it alive so far at the office and it's been blooming well there so far.

At the Strasburg Railway in Pennsylvania the locomotive backward pulls the train out to Paradise PA and then uncouples and moves around to the front of the train and pulls it forwards back to Strasburg.  I captured this image at Picnic Grove where Norfolk & Western 611 was heading back while N&W 475 was heading out.  The ride is short but nice through the Amish farm countryside.

This was the lovely sky I was treated to on the morning of November 4 as I headed to work that day.  I had to stop at the end of my driveway and get a quick pic.

My Maple Tree did not like the cold weather and dropped most of it's leaves very quickly.  Made me sad.  The few leaves that did stay on turned a lovely color.  I captured these with some lovely bubbly bokeh behind because of course, Fridays are Bokehlicious!

I was able to get this image in Pennsylvania.  This Bumble Bee was enjoying these flowers which were blue Lobelia, the same kind I shared last week but these were in Pennsylvania.  There is a bonus bug in the shot as well which I think is a Hover Fly.

It's Wildflower Wednesday!  Today's flower is another new one for his year.  It is not a very photogenic one but it is a common one around our area.  It is called a Stenosiphon.  Some may call it an Antenna plant but that isn't a totally common name.  It usually blooms July through September but I found it still blooming in October on Konza Prairie.

I took this shot the day I was visiting the BNSF Shops.  These are a couple working Burlington Northern Santa Fe locomotives that were siting by the Topeka Kansas station which is still used as an Amtrak stop.
