Crocus are up

I noticed these little guys up and reaching for the spring. I'll grab more shots when the darker purple rise up. As a side note, this is another shot from my fisheye lens at 10mm. (I love this lens!) The camera was flat on the ground and about 2 inches from the flowers. I did not expect to get this sort of close-up capability from this lens. Cool perspective too!

I am surprised that you are already seeing signs of spring. We had a cool December, so summer is only in full swing now and I hope it stays a bit longer.

Yup, Spring is certainly on it's way. Robins never left this year, Geese and Eagles are still on the move, the snow has been falling and melting fast cause warm rains are coming more and more.

I need one of those fisheye (crocus) lenses and maybe a lensbaby would be nice too.

I am so jealous of those beautiful buds. Enjoy them! Neat use of the fisheye, I'll have to look into that.
