Lots Of Love, Part Two





One can see a few lighter colored babies in this small herd of buffalo. the herd usually works together to shield and keep the youngsters in the inside. They look so tame and docile, but I have seen one jump across a creek from standing still.
Queen Anne's lace can be so delicate.



Daisy Fleabane
Prairie Larkspur
Asclepias tuberosa


The only Bobolink I found. This was one bird I was really hoping to see. They fly from Argentina to nest here in Iowa.

  1. Our daisy fleabane has come and gone with spring. I like the larkspur. I always say next year, I will keep a photo record of the changing flowers. I guess tomorrow better turn into today soon.

  6. Buffalo are amazing creatures. It makes me happy that there are so many places trying to preserve the species. I have never seen a bobolink but I often heard them when I was a child.

  8. There is a place not far from where I live where there are (or used to be) a number of Bobolinks that make an appearance every spring. We had a friend who lived in that spot, which is how we happened to see the birds. She has since moved. I've driven by a few times, hoping to see them, but to no avail. Our friend said there was always a group of birders who would come in the spring just to see the Bobolinks. I didn't know about the yellow head, though, until I saw your post and did a little further research. I need to make another effort to see them next spring.

  9. Isn't that bee picture amazing? I trust you used your zoom. I don't think I'd want to be too close if the model wasn't in the mood to be photographed:)
