This image was taken on a drab and drizzly day, so you’ll notice his feathers appear a bit damp.
There is no shortage of Goldfinches at our house – year round. (Might have something to do with the food we put out.) It’s nice to see them back in their bright yellow and black plumage for the spring and summer.

After an unseasonably cold spring, we were finally blessed with a sunny afternoon – it was Easter Sunday. We were ready to get outside and took a long walk through a wooded area.
Along the way we stumbled upon a few fresh flowers. These are the very first blooms of the season.
Just a few days ago, the area where we found these spring beauties was under a blanket of snow (nine inches) from a late winter storm.

Instead of posting the photo of a snow scene snapped last Saturday, I thought something a little more optimistic would be a better choice today.
These are some early blooming wildflowers I captured on a hike through the woods of a state park near Sturgeon Bay, WI.
The simplicity and the colors of this image make it one of my favorites.
