Same here, rain is forecast so I doubt I'll be getting up early.

We're not there yet, but we do have some blossoms coming out on trees. They're not quite ready though.

Don't deer always lose weight, and sometimes die, over the winter(s)?

Generally yes, but this winter was worse than most in most areas. The ones around here are looking pretty skinny as well.

We're finally getting spring around Cincinnati. 4 to 6 inches? What's your latitude, anyway?

We're about 38 North, straight west of Pueblo, CO at 8450 ft. We ended up with about 4 inches. Our old place on the west side of Denver got a foot. It was in the 60's all last week, back into the 50's tomorrow.

This morning

Got desperate to find signs of spring, found some blossoms on a neighbor's tree. Okay, they're little. The wind was blowing so much I had to hold it still even with a flash just to focus. Next month should be better.

Practiced a bit with the pen tool in Photoshop to cut it out.

Mr. Paul, Enjoyed the video. Can't get over how clean the water was and you could see the fish so clearly.

Bought a little planter of tulips (hey, it was on sale!) since there aren't any flowers growing in the wild yet. I just like playing around with the lighting, in this case two SB-200s on the lens and anther in various places along the sides. #2 is backlit, the translucency of the petals comes out.

More deer today. These look a little healthier. My plants don't stand a chance this year.

Looks like it'd be fun to me. Not cheap, but lots of fun! Of course, I'm one of those guys who thinks acrobatics in an airplane is fun.

According to the registry it's a Robinson R44. Good company, been around for a while. Not as long as the biggies but they came out with some new ideas on getting the cost of a helicopter down while keeping reliability up.

The second shot up from the bottom looks great mathjak - the one directly above the shot of the statue of liberty. Lots of detail, and looks great.

Beautifully rich and saturated colors in the pictures of tulips Walt. I like the bottom two.
