Signs of Spring


You may or may not know that I run a 3 mile loop around a local lake a few times a week.  I’ve been doing this for years now.  Not only does it keep me somewhat fit, it clears my head and makes me feel good!

Part of what I enjoy so much about my lake visits is witnessing the changes.  Changes in the seasons,  foliage & wildlife.

I have been stashing my camera in my car every morning, in hopes that the babies would be out soon.  Wouldn’t you know I saw them for the first time two days ago, and it was the ONE day I didn’t have my camera with me?!

This morning I arrived, camera in car.  No babies.  Warmed up and ran, and voila, they were there to greet me when I was done!  It is now officially Spring!

Took this shot with my kit 55-200 lens.  Anxious for a 2.8 zoom lens… would love a larger aperture …and better clarity … patience, patience!
