    Has Spring Sprung????

    This may be a better topic for the N&W forum but I thing it's pretty general so here we go in Viewfinder. I was out yesterday afternoon and really started to see the first real signs of Spring. It seems like it is taking a long tome this year to get here. Here are a few of the images I got yesterday feel free to add your first signs of Spring photos here in this thread.

    Re: Has Spring Sprung????

    I think Spring has finally Sprung OT - we spotted this pair of Robins in the back yard, just yesterday.
    The sun is getting warmer, the geese are heading back north, and the yard critters are out and about, feasting on the spillage and leftovers from our winter feathered friends
    Way too soon for bloom time here, but we're finally headed in the right direction.
    Yeeeoooowwwwsa ! :thumbsup:

    Well, here in Northern NJ, I haven't seen any signs of spring yet - except we had a few days of warmer weather, then back to cold. But this weekend looks promising.

    Spring has sprung

    Love your macro OT. Beautiful and sharp. Good job :thumbsup:

    Autumn is just around the corner here. I'm hoping to capture some nice colours soon.

    Re: Has Spring Sprung????

    Thanks for the nice comments about my early Spring macros. I hope a lot more PRers will get out and record those first signs of Spring for this thread. In the mean time here are a couple of more BEE-utes form afternoon in the neighborhood.

    I took an hour after work when the sun was out and walked around the neighbor hood. It was well worth the time.

    Gorgeous stuff. Amazing what a very small zap of light can do to really bring an image to life.

    Re: Has Spring Sprung????

    Spring may have arrived on the calendar, but two days in, it gave us in parts of the west somewhere between 25 and 35 cm of snow. Won't be doing any macros in that stuff. Today is warmer and it is starting to melt. Good days for those who own car washes.

    Cheers,

    Rick,

    I love the composition of the white flowers with the red. The challenge of getting the details of white petals in bright sunlight is a difficult one, but I think the overall presentation is nicely done.

    Thanks, OT, for starting this thread; I think many of us have been looking for signs of spring
    Love those bee shots, esp the last one!

    These have appeared in my garden
