This spring, I got to travel to North Carolina and various places around Florida. Naturally, I took lots of photos. Over the next few weeks, I plan on publishing several posts (either here or over on Happier.Place) dedicated to specific locations, e.g., Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
But for now, here is a collection of photos featuring spring blooms and baby birds, or teen birds, if you will. Officially, spring isn’t over – but in Florida it already feels like summer and “they grow up so fast”. So I don’t really expect to take any more photos of springtime wildflowers or baby birds. Except that I’m hoping to still get everything aligned just right to get better photos of younger pelican chicks (vs. the tweens I’m featuring in this post).
Because nature doesn’t always stick to the “calendar season,” I’m also including a photo of almond blossoms that I took during a trip to Germany in early March, officially still winter.
For more photos and to purchase prints (or photo-adorned items), please visit the Spring Blooms and Chicks gallery on the LuciWest photography site.
Actually, these aren’t little babies anymore, which have even shorter beaks and fluffier white feathers. But the waterproof camera gave out before I could get to the other side of the island with the younger chicks. And since then the pump for my paddle board broke. Hoping new pump arrives and camera works better before they are all grown. Might just add more photos to this post if I get them.
If you want to see even more spring flower and bird photos, you can find those in the Spring Blooms and Chicks album on Flickr.
