A Prairie Morn

Sunrise is slow and easy on the prairie,
with only a few morning sounds for accompaniment.

A farmer's dog barking,
the crickets finishing their night-time soliloquy,
the morning birds chirping, at work on their breakfast.

 There are always deer to be found (see their heads?)

Leave it to me to frighten them,
so that they distance themselves from my camera lens.

For some really awesome wildlife photography,
check out my friend Misty's portfolio.
Or her blog.
Misty knows how to sneak up on wildlife!
(Or else she's got a lens a foot long.)

 Barack and Fluff are always with me.
They are most definitely "morning" cats.

Fluff, on alert, as usual.

Today is a Wichita morning.
We need some supplies from the big city.
What's on your weekend plate of "to-do"?


  1. Love your early morning on the prairie!

  2. Ahhhh...looks like Kansas...flat with BIG deer! :)

    Gonna drive by the castle on your adventure into the big city?

    Just lazing around here...have to run to the Big City (population 7,500 LOL) to pick up a prescription for my mom, but it is in the 90's and I am waiting for it to cool down a bit.

    Guess I'll go rustle up some of the seasonal/weekend campers and see what is going on in the outside world. :)

  3. You are so very kind! I had a cat named Fluffy! Had him from age of 5 until my senior year.
