Love to photograph the spring leaves.




I have an unusually large number of Jack-in-the-pulpits blooming around the farm this year.


The Prairie Smoke has just started blooming at Hoffman Hills. It is one of the first flowers to boom.


The Large-flowered Trillium has been blooming on the farm. Unfortunately we were traveling in the Netherlands and missed most of the bloom. Things are winding down now.

The Common Blue Violets are blooming all around the farm.


I happened to be working in the lawn yesterday when I noticed some Chestnut-sided Warblers in the trees. They were doing a great job of posing until I got my camera out.


One of my favorite photography subjects in the spring is backlit leaves. The back lighting gives the leaves a translucent appearance.


We spent the morning out at Hoffman Hills and The trees were in full spring color. I think the spring colors are almost as good as the fall colors.

The apple trees are in full bloom.

There are a pair of Canada Geese nesting on the first pond.

There are a variety of flowers in bloom. The Prairie Smoke are just about to start blooming.

The seeds on the maple trees are very colorful.

There were Painted Turtles everywhere.

Nice pond reflections on a beautiful sunny day.

A Vireo was flying around the second pond.


I decided to try a little black and white photography during a walk through the woods.



The Pussy Willows are in bloom around the area.
