Spring Greening


These weeping willow vines caught my eye this Spring.  They were so luminous against a deep blue sky.





Reflections of wispy Aspens.



Some early migrants floated by almost out of camera range..



A newborn snapping turtle scuttled across the road.



Two dudes running...



Wood Lake then....


Wood Lake now.  Things are getting thicker, lush and super green.  I heard plenty of Spring frogs humming and croaking on this walk.  They can create a pretty deafening backdrop of sound. And Kermet would certainly approve of all this color.

Hello Sharon, I love the willow trees! They are so pretty. Cute shots of the Bufflehead ducks and turkey. And a Cool sighting of the snapper, it looks tiny. Great post! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
