There are many signs of the advance of Spring, including the beautiful sound of cardinals calling a mate.

I found this chickadee gathering materials for nesting.

The northern blue jay is almost identical to its southern relatives, only in a much paler blue.

I have to admit, I love documentary style photography.  It’s the best way to see the beauty of reality.

There’s no doubt great egrets are beautiful, but with a wingspan of 1.7 meters they look even more amazing.

The brilliant male cardinals have been going at the mating game, and all I hear when I walk outside is that familiar call of spring.

This week I was out shooting for my school assignments, when I happened on some cone flowers that were buzzing with bumble bees.  With my love of shooting close ups, I couldn’t resist the opportunity.  It wasn’t part of my school assignment, but you take the shots as they come.

I love dragonflies.  They are harmless to humans, and they eat mosquitos and black flies.  Dragonflies come in a variety of colors, and they make great photo subjects.

This week I was at Mill Creek park, shooting every dragonfly that would sit still long enough, when I saw something golden cross my path.  I went to where it landed, and saw a black dragonfly, with golden wings.  This was something I had never seen, so I started snapping.

After 10 good shots, I found one that was exceptionally clear, so I have chosen this as the photo of the week, and my favorite shot of the month.
