This spring is the most colorful that I can remember. Or maybe I'm just more aware of the beauty around me. Either way, I am really enjoying this spring and capturing some of its beauty to share with you.
A gorgeous flowering tree at Moraine's South Shore.
Lots of blossoming trees along the bike trail.
I managed to capture a bee in flight while photographing the blossoms. Sorry that you are seeing his back end instead of his front. :)
Along with this little fly that I didn't know I captured. :)
I'm so excited to see butterflies flitting around again! Soon the Monarchs will be back and hopefully we can raise a few again this summer.
The trees are waking up after their long winter's nap.
This pine tree is in my back yard. I never noticed before how the little pine cones start out this reddish/purple color.
Lastly, this blossoming (pear?) tree is in our neighbor's yard. It is gorgeous!
