Looks like Signs of Spring

Looks like Signs of Spring

Signs of spring are starting to appear everywhere.
It's definitely a case of better late than never as the
flowers are about a month late coming
into bloom and the buds are only starting to
swell on the trees.

Nikon D90
1/1000s f/5.6 at 105.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

WOW! Everything about this image is just perfect! I'm glad this lady bug cooperated by sitting in exactly the right spot. BBV!

Much as I thought that the browns in today's picture worked well for it, *this* is probably my favourite out of the recent macro series. I like the intensity of the greens, with the bug providing a nice colour counterpoint.

Of all insects, ladybugs are the most endearing. Glad to see spring is coming for you. Excellent colours and details.
