This and That: U.P. Spring pictures continue!
I am behind in posting pictures that I took weeks ago
when spring arrived
in the glorious U.P. (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan.
So, between still showing you some of the April/May Florida photos
I will still post some photos
of the spring ones I took at home here in the U.P.
Primrose from my garden:
A yellow finch sitting in the sun, with a little bit of a sassy attitude!:
A rose-breasted grosbeak.
We had four, but they only visited us for about three weeks.
We haven't seen them at all since the beginning of May:
One of my favorite birds! A Flicker!:
We visited some of our favorite rivers this spring...but I loved the foamy swirls
in the water, so I did a black and white of the foam:
Budding trees...I always love when they break out in buds and fresh leaves!:
A duck taking off from the water:
A hooded merganser and mate taking off from the water:
I love spring and the beginning of summer for the flowers blooming, trees coming out with bright green leaves and all the animals we see.
I will be posting more again soon!
