The trees are really budding out at Hoffman Hills.

 

A walk through Hoffman Hills Recreation Area gave me an opportunity to photograph some spring, blooms, buds and leaves. For most of the shots taken in the wetlands area I used my 500mm lens. This allowed me to get some close-ups while avoiding walking in the wetlands.

After photographing in the wetlands we hike up to the Tower at Hoffman Hills. I took a few shots of some backlit spring leaves, with my 300mm lens, on the way to the tower.

More spring photographs from Hoffman Hills can be found on my website.

One of the subjects I like to photograph in the spring are the buds and leaves as the emerge in the spring. Some of the colors of spring are just as good as those of fall.
