Redbuds are A'Bloomin'

In St. Mary's County the parking lots are full of beautiful flowering trees.  The cars in the background usually turn the photos into snapshots, so I just enjoy the flowers with my eye instead of a camera.  I tried my best to keep the cars out of these particular photos.  I especially liked the parking lot in Callaway where the Redbud trees were everywhere.

 The reflection is from the moon roof of my car!

The shadows on the wall were interesting.

More Spring Photos

Think Pink!
Just some pictures within walking distance of my current job.  Sometimes good photos are closer than you think.

The Osprey Pair

As I showed on March 16th, the ospreys are back on their nests.  I saw 2 on my way home yesterday along route 5. 

Here are a few shots of this year's osprey pair.  They generally mate for life and often return to the same location, so I don't know if this is a new pair or not.  You may recall that our male osprey died last year, and might have been killed by another bird.

They have already had one argument with the neighboring osprey, according to Jim.
