The warmer days are making me dream of spring. I am looking forward to chasing the bees and butterflies and hummingbirds in my yard with my camera. I stopped by the "daffodil fields" between Winterville and Ayden and took a few shots this afternoon. I couldn't help but dream about how much more fun it will be next year when I have my little grandson to photograph among the daffodils.
Just to get you in the mood for spring, here are a few old photos of a bumble bee on an azalea in my back yard.

The next photos were taken in Oriental. We visited one of Nancy's relatives who owns and operates a marina and he recommended some places where we might get some good shots as well as a couple of places where we could get a good lunch. We enjoyed walking around the docks and taking photos of the various boats and the equipment that went with them. The two photos of sea gulls were just lucky shots. I tried to lure them towards us by throwing pretzels into the water (it's all I had,) but the gulls weren't in the mood for posing. Out of about 20 shots, these two were the only ones I managed to get in focus.
