Away on Spring Break

Spring break is here. I am taking the week off with my kids, but posting a couple of springtime pictures from my front yard.

The trees haven’t leafed out yet. This one probably won’t as I think that it is dying and I need to replace it. But there was a little bird in the top of it waiting for me to leave so it could go at my feeder.

I will probably be fighting with the barn swallows trying to build a nest on my front porch soon enough.

The other tree is blossoming and covered with butterflies, which don’t like to sit still for a photograph. After following them around with a 200mm lens, I was most happy with this photo. Easy to get a lot of bokeh when shooting close-up with a 200mm lens.

Hope you have a nice spring break!
