The Dandelion Gang

019

Dandelions can be very photogenic, as they have many stages of life, bloom, and fade-outs. I’ve photographed them, here, in Black and White, Full Color, and Sepia.

I’ve never tasted a dandelion, though many say they are salad-worthy. Mostly, I’ve thought of them as residential yard nuisances, but this Spring I found them a worthy photographic project. Enjoy! One way, or the other!

Birds Getting Spring-ee

015

Had a little time yesterday to bird watch… They’re beginning to see Spring, I think (hope!)

This first fellow, going by the picture in my bird book, looks to be a Red-naped Sapsucker, with his speckled belly and red throat and face stripes. He was hanging around at the next block.

Here, of course, is a Mourning Dove. She’s perched on a neighborhood power line and gave me a nice turn of the head for this photo.
