Pea flower

Following days of rain, the sun is out and things are drying.
There has been so much rain that plants just
grew and grew and grew and we didn't see much else. A
day or two of sun has really brought out the development
phases so we can hope for some fruit.

Pansy portrait

Flower photos aren't my usual thing. In this case the light
was hitting the flowers making it interesting
to try something.

That day at House on the Rocks I took almost 200 pictures.
The place is just so weird. This shot was in an area loaded
with circus things: tiny model circuses by the thousdands,
wagon wheels, posters...and this.

Infinity room

The Infinity Room at House on the Rocks. Or something. The "house" itself is
rather cool. The rest of the place is just odd. Lots of it is junk. Some of it
is priceless. Maybe. All a head shaker.

Stormy dinner

This is from a set called "feeding the string." A storm had just passed
and the horses and people came out of their shelters to finish evening

Over the shoulder

The outcome of the picture seems to imply being blocked
off from going toward the other horse. But not so much.
Just me trying to take a different horse picture.

Running for the barn

A storm blew in as I was out in the pasture taking pictures.
The horses made it back to the barn ahead of me!

Ms. Jersey

Ms. Jersey, originally uploaded by NetAgra.
Curious history. Snapped this shot while visiting an agricultural
experiment station. Ms. Jersey is a research animal. She is not a pet,
or for that matter a member of a commercial dairy herd. But she is,
along with her herd-mates, one of the best cared for animals in the
world. It's a portrait of a working dairy animal. One of my photofans has
commented that, in a set of related photos, the cows don't look so good.
I've asked in a reply why the commenter feels that way. Right now, I'm
guessing that most people see animals as pets and a picture of a working
dairy cow in a work setting is foreign. Ms. Jersey was eating vigorously
before she looked up at me and the camera.
