In the woods: April in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan


Even though there are barely any leaves on the trees in our neck of the woods in early April,
it is still great to get outside with my camera lens and capture
whatever we can find.
 
I am looking forward to next month, when our snow will hopefully be gone
so I can get out again.
These shots were taken last April out in our woods...




This waterfall has no name, it only shows up in the spring when the snow melts:







Nothing like mushrooms on an old stump for texture!:

















And, to get a glimpse at the first wildflowers in our area to bloom (Trout Lilies!) are a thrill:









Spring beauties growing by an old log:






And to see the first turtles in the melted ponds--it's always nice!:
















Sunbathing in the new spring sun must feel pretty good to them!:









I can feel the warmth of the sun is getting stronger.
 
We still have very cold temperatures here, but during the day our icicles are dripping hard
and I hear the maple trees are starting to provide some running sap for maple syrup.
 
Spring can't be far behind that, right???
