Dakota's Nature Photos

Ready or Not

Elven Maiden is hosting a spring photo contest over on her blog, and since I'm somebody who loves both spring and photography I thought I'd go ahead and enter. These are the same crocuses from my last photo, but would you believe this is actually the more recent shot? I was surprised to wake up to 4" of snow yesterday morning and even more surprised to realize that crocuses aren't bothered by it. Spring is determined to get here one way or another!

EDIT: I'm grateful to have been awarded 2nd place in the contest. Thanks Elven!

Wow.. there's still snow there, huh?

Well, it's 60 degrees out now so it's pretty much all melted, but I'm hoping it will keep the mosquitoes away for a bit longer. :D
