Here are a few more photos from our recent trip to the Black Hills and the Badlands in South Dakota.
I was in the Badlands early one morning enjoying the sunrise and watching some bison graze. This Western Meadowlark flew straight at my windshield and then veered off at the last moment and landed on a fence near me. The pink and blue sky made a nice background for this photo. The Western Meadowlark is the state bird of six of our states (Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, and Wyoming)
