My offering of grape jelly has attracted at least one pair of Orioles to my deck. They are quite wary and usually fly away as soon as I pick up the camera, but I managed to catch this one the other day.  I have also seen a male Hummingbird at the feeder I put out a few days ago, and business should pick up once the young ones fledge.

We have had a lot of windy days lately, which makes wildflower photography quite difficult, but I managed to snap a couple of Trillium in the woods the other day.IMG_4289

Oak Trees are among the last to leaf out, and the tiny new leaves are bright red.

Young Pine cones are quite colorful too, and it looks like there will be a good crop this year.

  1. What a gorgeous bird and amazing capture. Beautiful colors in these photos. We don’t have that kind of pine tree here, those cones are so pretty. I hope you are having some nice weather to enjoy. Hugs, Mags

    • Not sure what type of pine this is, but I believe it is a Jack Pine. There are lots of them in the Park. Weather is still changeable, but warming up some. Lots of rain though. Thanks for visiting.

    • Thanks. They are a challenge. Have to keep the camera handy, and be as sneaky as possible!
