Spring

The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming. I saw my first Warbler of the year this morning, a Yellow-Rumped Warbler. I also saw my first butterfly, a White something or other.

I went out and took this of what I think are Siberian Squill. I took this with quite a combination. The camera was my Sony A7RII, the lens was a Zeiss 135mm f2.8 in a Contax mount adapted to the Sony with a Fotodiox adapter. All manual of course but it came out nice and sharp.

Bye Bye Snow Geese

The Snow Geese have gone from the fields around home. They are on their way North to the breeding sites in Canada.

Hershey Butterflies

I popped in to Hershey Gardens again and had an hour walking round finding the different butterflies. A Giant Owl landed on my leg and kept me company the whole time I was there. I don't know the name of the flowers but what the hell, who cares.

Infra Red and Snow

We got hammered by a late snow storm named "Stella" on Tuesday. We got 14 inches, further North they got 30 or more. Wednesday was very windy that caused drifting which caused more problems. We stayed at home on Tuesday and I made sure the birds had plenty of food which judging by the numbers of birds we saw they appreciated. By Sunday the snow is slowing melting. I took these with the Infra Red modified Sony A7R out of the window.
