I captured a photo of what
I believe is an indigo bunting
at Ledges State Park
during the summer of 2012.
I had never seen one,
except in photographs,
until that very day.
I was just lucky enough to get
little guy to sit still long enough
to snap a few photos.

If you go through any of the photos
on my blog, you'll see a recurring theme:
flowers, particularly brown-eyed Susans.
I've come across meadows
full of these flowers
on several different occasions
and think they're gorgeous.
I love them from far-away,
with the sky behind them,
and I love them close-up,
where you can see the finer details.

The grand old barns scattered
across Iowa's landscape
are slowly going by the wayside.
Many of the wonderful old barns,
such as this one that once
stood proudly north of Madrid,
are falling down.
We're losing these great
works of art,
one by one,
to time and the weather.
The best I can do is
preserve them with photography.
