Spring!
Been blessed with some nice weekends and gorgeous venues in which to practise with the camera I got for Christmas. Spring lovers, enjoy!




Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, April 29, 2017







Marsh marigolds always remind me of Hope's Passage so I have a soft spot for them


Virginia Bluebells are a favorite of mine (so long as I can also claim 20 other species as "favorite" spring flowers!)

Louisville Swamp NWR, May 6, 2017



Wild Blue Phlox, another "favorite"


No, those are not dandelions, the path in places was drowning in buttercups!


Loved the contrast of death and life


Male Eastern Towhee








White-throated Sparrow--I will never forget where I was when I first heard the beautifully mournful song of this species

Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, May 7, 2017



Canada Goose on nest












Trillum is another of my favorite spring flowers

William O'Brien State Park, May 13, 2017



Male Eastern Bluebird






Makes me think of Tolkien's poem: "In every wood in every spring there is a different green."


Canada Goose gosling (don't worry, parents on both sides just outside camera view)

Beautiful photos, sure enjoyed them. Love the lilacs ones
and the Trillums. Your camera seems to be working well.
Thank for posting them.
