Blue Birds Misc

First, I have to say that making photos of Blue Birds isn’t easy. They flit around very fast, and when using a 200mm lens like I was, the critters aren’t always in perfect focus. I did the best I could, however, and overall I’m happy. Here’s a gallery to see what I saw. (I note that the very early buds on the trees now, and the warmer weather insects below the trees on the ground, are attracting one of my favorite birds. Our neighbors have bird houses for them, so they are always around. Unfortunately my long lens camera isn’t. I kinda got lucky here.)

Leap into Spring

About this time every year I watch for early signs of Spring in our yard. Today (February 29) it’s 70 degrees, and sunny. And look what I saw. We’re literally “leaping” into Spring. I’m not saying we won’t take a step or two backwards into Winter, but I’ll sure take what we have today.

Flowering Trees

More and more flowering trees in SW Virginia are coming into “color” and the only way to make such last beyond nature’s timetable is to make some photos, which is what I’ve done again this year. So long as there are nice possibilities out there, I’ll keep my camera going to record it all.
