springtime

when the snow melts in the spring the prairie fills with water, creating some wonderful views


great reflections





and  supporting a wide variety of birds- some leave when things dry up, some stay







there will be wildflowers in a month or so.

 i am challenging myself to learn to use my fancy camera this year. shoot a lot, shoot manually, get the things i want in focus. it's a shame to have such a nice instrument and not do a better job with it. wish me luck- the owner's manual is 400 pages long....

Beautiful photos! A 400 page manual...that is almost ridiculous!
Have a great Easter!
