A prairie castle stands off in the background
The start of a fairy tale.
Last years nest, many are sitting on nests right now. I have been watching a new eagle nest, they laid eggs near Valentine's Day.
With the right angle getting full use of the sun I was able to ghost out this plant. If I moved even a fraction of an inch I would have had full focus like this next shot.
These are all dried goldenrod blooms.
A second attempt, I got better definition.
Can one ever look more laid back?
Life is good lounging
On a giant piece of limestone.
Playing with the contrails and sunset, there weren't many clouds to use.
Rather nice to have 750 acres of prairie all to myself. Meanwhile over in Grand Island , Nebraska is the Sandhill Crane migration.
