Backyard Spring Nature in New Jersey.

Daily images. In the morning an American Goldfinch at the bird feeder. In the afternoon some late-blooming fancy daffodils, garlic mustard flowers (invasive weed), grape hyacinth flowers (invasive weed), violet flowers, carpenter bees, and a wary doe. I had to spend a lot of time trying to capture the carpenter bees in flight. Ultimately, I managed to capture a couple of images by using manual focus. (Individual images from the slide show can be viewed here.)

My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images.
