  2. The horse shot is my favorite...I always thought that loving a prairie would be difficult until I met my midwesterner husband...he likes flats...fascinating that our likes depend so much on where we grew up...I also love the road and the windmill and the gigantic black bird (!!!) flying...all beauty in elegant beige xx

    1. Jeansy, it took me a long time to appreciate the wide open emptiness. I love it so much now. Especially when I go away somewhere and come back. I see it and say Oh Yeah, I've Missed You my Prairie!

    1. Hey Kaelee! Those are Sandhill Cranes! A special bird to see, for sure. They are found on grasslands, wetlands and migrate along the Platte river that flows through this state.
      Thanks for being here!

    1. There were a dozen of these Sandhill Cranes, making all kinds of trumpeting calls. The male calls once and the female answers back twice, synchronized! It's so dang fascinating to hear their sound. Check it out, my prairie lovin' sister!

  8. indeed, indeed. i think it is the quiet of the prairie, the longing that is done across the plains, that is so hard to see, you have to squint. squint. squint. & be very still.

    1. Perfect description!! Squint is right! I do a lot of that!
      And it's so quiet and longing and lonely looking, but it's also so comforting, this wide open land.
      Thanks for being here. x
