From Preston (winner of the Forum Contest, Gray):

Thank you everyone.

I have suggested to James that the next challenge be "Signs of Spring".

Since it is already the 14th, it seems like this ought to run until Mid April. That will be April 15th.

Happy shooting.

Hi All,

I just came out of the lurking mode (please see my introductory post on the Pet Photography Forum) and thought I might give this a try:


Spring is sniffing a daffodil:





Y'all have a wonderful Easter.

Spring is a time of renewal. But, often, it's also a time of survival -- just hanging in there. One of the first signs of Spring here in Central Florida is the return of the multitude of butterflies that feed on our abundant flowers. This week, Linda and I visited the Harry P. Leu Gardens here in Orlando and enjoyed all the sights, sounds and scents of Spring. In the butterfly garden, we watched various species zooming from flower to flower and captured some images of quite a few. One, in particular, caught my eye. A Monarch. Obviously, somewhat the worse for wear having survived buffeting winds and a tenuous journey just to be there. But, there he was enjoying the Lantana. I've dubbed this photo: Tattered, Battered and Torn. And I can personally relate to this intrepid guy smile.

Would people be ok if I extend this through the 27th? I am away, and it is easier if we let is run through for a bit.

Speaking of entries....here is my bid. Went to the Japanese Gardens this morning. The delicate blossms were some of my favorite. Subtil.



Happy Spring!!

Wow these are really great! Peggy Sue, yours is gorgeous, just enough effect to make it different (and gorgeous) but not enough to take away a realistic feel.

Thanks Diana. Looks like people had some fun doing the sping images. Sure was nice to get out into some lovely weather! Lovely images all smile
