I noticed that the purple crocus flowers across the street just started to bloom. Early, but not as early as 17-February-2012. It was sunny today, and another reason to check out a new camera. This was also the first day this year that my solar panels produced more electricity than I used.
Some more late winter flowers from my daily walkabout. There is hope for spring. Images taken with a Nikon 1 V1 camera and 30-110 mm VR lens. I got to really like this lightweight camera. A lot of folks consider the Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras as toys that a professional would never use.
Nun in the spring purple crocus flower garden. This is almost a month later that the Crocuses bloomed for the last several years. Image taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and Fuji 60 mm f/2.4 macro lens (ISO 200, 60 mm, f/16, 1/180 sec).
