A creepy crawly insect was enjoying the flavor of this coneflower/black-eyed susan. (the internet has confused me as to what kind of wildflower this is)

When I looked up from my spot in the tall grass, I saw the elusive jackrabbit.  These little guys are so hard to photograph because they move so fast. I mean as soon as I spot one, poof, he’s gone. But this guy stuck around long enough for one click.

      They do frolic don’t they! I usually get a shot of their butts when they are hopping away from me so I’m pleased with this shot. 🙂

    That ladybird shot is so well captured – they always make me happy seeing them fluttering around!

      They make me happy too Rachael. I always stop to photograph them when I spot one.

    A jackelope! Oh no – it’s just a jack rabbit. Great, great capture, Leah! The ladybug is gorgeous. I can’t wait to show my boys that picture.

      Folks around here have tried to fool me with the jackelope. We were at a friends house and he had a couple mounted on the wall. I knew better though! Glad you like the ladybug. I thought you would! 😉

    Wonderful. Glad the rabbit waited one minute! We can all see it now. Thanks for sharing

    Your photos made me smile in the midst of a very sad week for our family – two good friends passed away, one quite unexpectedly. Looking at these pictures helps to remind me that there’s design, and sweetness, and joy in even the little things. Thanks. Leah.

      Oh Janet, I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m glad that the pictures help you find a little joy. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s. They may bring a tear or two. Happy tears that it. Take care Janet!

    I had a good time in Wheatland. Kind of hot for the season. Glad the fire was out.

      Oh that’s great Tiberious! Yeah, it’s been really hot and hazy. So glad you didn’t have to deal with fire.

    Great Photos! I saw a jackrabbit recently – swear their ears are just about the same length as their front paws.

    Love your photographs. Makes me want to dust off the camera and start snapping photos again. Love the Jack Rabbit. I use to watch them in our back yard, loved their BIG ears !!!
