Spring in the Backyard – Touched Up

I shot and posted this image earlier but brought it back up for a little work.  Particularly the Flowering Crab and Daisy Plants.

Foggy Spring Morning

I believe this was shot in the Spring of 2016 but perhaps this Spring. Remember, my Point and Shoot’s date and time stamp feature has stopped working.  It’s set, forever, on December 1979.

Note:  Our daughter, Stephanie, transplanted the Black-Eyed Susans from another part of our yard and they really took off.

Male, American Gold Finch, picking seeds from a Cone Plant

This handsome little fella was very busy a few mornings ago. He was moving from plant to plant and I was lucky to catch him before he moved again.  Actually, it seems a bit early for Finches to be feeding on Cone Plants.  We generally don’t see them until the fall.  But, this plant got his attention.

Bumlebee on a Cone Plant

This young bumblebee was busy gathering nectar a few days ago.  I’ve found, over the years, if you don’t disturb them while they gather, bumblebees just go about their business allowing you to get quite close – quietly.

Single Cone Plant

I found this image in my archives from April 2012. The plant was a bit haggard but, in my opinion, the color out weighed what might have been –  just another Cone Plant.

Early Spring 2017

Early Spring 2017_edited-1_wm

I took this image on April 14th this spring from inside the house as it was to cool for me to go out.  I’m afraid it’s not as well focused as any of us would like  – particularly the Flowering Crab.  I worked with it a bit in Photoshop Elements 6 but was unable to improve it beyond what you see here.  Anyway, it was early morning light and the Flowering Crabs flower’s are a crimson red. On the left is a Lilac Bush which, at the time, had not blomed.

My wife has a green thumb as you can see.  For your info …  I shot this with my Canon 75-300 Zoom Lens – and my Canon T3 set on Landscape. I don’t have a Macro lens so this works for me when shooting more than one subject.  Of course my camera has a Macro setting but I like the long lense.  This shot is hand held!  Just my way to have fun.
