March into Spring photo contest

March into Spring Photo Contest

While not taken this spring because we still have over a foot of snow on the ground, it is still a springy picture.  One of the first signs of spring here is the return of our Ruby-throated Hummingbirds!  This was taken last year...

For us northern people spring won't be here till April....although Spring teased us all through January & February this year...; ) it doesn't begin to look like spring till April, here in NY.
The Hummingbirds are delightful to see.  I only saw hummingbirds twice in my life time.

Linda,  very cool spring shot...and the challenge didn't specify THIS spring. LOL We actually had 69 degree temps today here in central NJ...so I shot some spring flowers. I can't imagine having all that snow on the ground and no flowers peeping through. Great entry!

I love hummingbirds!  Great shot and very representative of Spring.  I try every year to attract humminbirds to our yard and I seem to be successful about every other year.

Wow, no way I could get my camera to do that!  Not that it's not capable, I just haven't figured it out completely!  Very nice picture.
