It's Getting Better


This huge wasp kept coming back to the same place, perhaps to harvest minerals or look for a meal. When I became interested, and  so did a little dog, and it was hard to keep her attention away so she didn't try to catch it. While on the hunt, we often hunt together.












A silent day, only the wind coming across the prairie offered  any words. The beauty surrounded me and made me carry a smile while out in the warm sun. This is more than a part of my day, it is a part of my life and what makes me happy.

  1. I have enjoyed scrolling through your posts this morning while I have my first cup of coffee. Your photos are all beautiful and your accompanying text well written and calming. A great way to begin my day. I'm sorry to learn you've been ill, and glad you are well on your way to recovery. Pancreatitis is nothing to shake a stick at! Thank you for sharing Narure's healing powers! XO

  6. some really great shots there. love the frog just poking out of the water and I know the liatris but what is that other purple flower? I'm ready for the temps to cool down some as I want to do my fall work out in the yard.

  9. Awesome shots of flowers and insects. I'm not patient enough to sit in one spot and have insects come to me.

  10. This world, oh this world. I walk around, most likely looking a little imbecilic, with a huge grin on my face when I'm out in nature.

  11. OK so I have been living under a rock, Steve, because I didn't know you weren't filling well until reading previous comments. Admittedly, my blog reading and posting has been less frequent. We always appreciate your comments on our posts, thank you. Hope that you are on the way to full recovery very soon so you can keep exploring the prairie and posting wonderful images for all of us. Take good care of yourself.
