Everything about us with own pictures
Sometimes the wait for a train is long during trainspotting . Those moments I usually engage in nature photography. I was waiting for this shot . http://trainspo.com/photo/70125/
... then I suddenly saw a red kite landing in the nearby paddy field ...

Isn't it? I share you interest in nature whilst waiting for motive power. This lizard was watching me watching him at Bischofsheim. He was hiding in a cable pit.
@Astro Interesting !!! Birds , reptiles show up while waiting for a train... trainspotting makes us a nature photographers too

In India,its not unusual that Railway protection force personnel stare at you for clicking pictures in big stations.
But being stared and nearly charged by this one is something new for me
At least it has no sting in its tail

Safety first, else safety last. This was supposed to be a photo of the 2442 but I messed it up big time.
@Astro OOPs ... I hate such moments ...after long wait , the train comes and then everything messed up
@Akhilsanjeev90 Can expect this any moment in tropical climate

The ballast is a little hard for digging in.
Saw this flyer near Hardin, Missouri, during a train-watching expedition recently.
And here is another safety message...
Thanks! It's not always about trains, is it?
It is trains , nature , life ... trainspotting is a combination of all these ....
Right you are, Jay! Nice bunch of images so far, guys!
@Akhilsanjeev90 Thanks, Akhil!
Pigeons on a wire at the Bartlett grain elevator in KC, KS.
@Maersk.146 Nice shot..love that shadows too
Sometimes to spot morning trains have to get up so early by 3 or 4AM , catch the first local train to be at the spot. Then such beautiful sunrise can be seen too ....
@jmadhavadas Some scenes of nature are worth the early start. A very nice capture.
While waiting for some BNSF action, saw these pelicans on a nearby pond. Pretty rare in Missouri - can't say I've seen them here before (though I AM pretty old - I may have forgotten...)
@Maersk.146 That's a thumbs up from me.
