Waiting for Spring

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. 

If you love to watch ruby throated hummingbirds like I do, here is a link to a hummingbird migration map:    I enjoy keeping up with their northward migration and trying to predict when I will spot my first hummer of the season.  My mother and I watch our feeders and try to be the first to call the other to announce the arrival of the tiny visitors.  So far, she has seen the first one every year.  Maybe this year it will be my turn.

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.

  1. Great photos. I can never get them to be still enough to take a great shot.
