Below are a series of shots taken during our recent stay in Florida. They are images that spoke to me in ways the transcended the subject and evoked feelings of joy and wonder. Hope you enjoy.
The next Florida post will be about the birds we were able to photograph as we explored some of the state’s trails and waterways. Thanks for stopping by.

After several weeks birding, hiking, and paddling in warm and sunny Florida fifteen hundred miles to our south, we’ve returned to early spring in Ohio.
Fortunately the welcoming committee was out when we decided to get reacquainted with some of our favorite places.
This year our timing was just right to see a number of rare Snow Trillium along Griggs Reservoir. This made the day because in past years we often waited too long and missed them. This smallest of Ohio’s trilliums typically arrives in middle to late March and doesn’t hang around. That fact coupled with their small numbers makes them a challenge to find.
Bloodroot were also out but the previous night’s heavy rain was hard on their fragile petals.
Crab apple blossoms in early spring are always a delight.
As though pretended to be flowers, spring leaves emerge.
Turkey tail joins in on the competition for the camera’s lens.
Along Griggs Reservoir Cedar Waxwings announce spring’s arrival.
On the reservoir, marking the time of year, a lone Ruddy Duck seems to be on it’s way to somewhere further north.
I apologize for the longer than normal absence of posts. To compensate we hope to have some interesting shots of things seen in Florida in the coming weeks as we continue to celebrate spring in central Ohio.
Thanks for stopping by.
