This is an image I have had around for a bit.  If I knew what these berries were when I originally took the photo I have forgotten.  If anyone knows that would be great if you leave me a comment with an ID.  I just liked the circle shapes on the bottom of each berry and thought they made for an interesting subject.

So spring is springing  up like crazy with our summery weather so Tulips in the ground are quickly coming up.  This image is actually from an arrangement of spring bulbs I got as a gift from my sis-in-law this year.  Red is a very hard color to photograph and get good detail but I was happy with this image and the details I was able to capture in the petals.

So it's officially Spring but having a bit of summer right off but hopefully back to the correct weather now.  I captured this image a few weeks ago of this Nuthatch that has been visiting one of my feeders.  I love to watch these birds walking face first down the tree trunks.  Too cute.  I caught this one when it posed for me for just a moment.

My image today is a bit different since I am not into spiders much, they creep me out.  I was able to get a shot of this one without getting too close.  😀  I've had this shot around for a while but never shared it.  It seemed to fit for a theme on G+ today so I thought, why not.  It's a good nature shot.  LOL  So I hope it doesn't creep you out to much.

My steamy image for today goes back to the Henry Ford Greenfield Village in Dearborn Michigan from this past summer.  Here, the beautifully kept up locomotive No. 7 is pulling a train out of the trees after a stop at one of the stations on the grounds.  It was clearing water out of the cylinders so putting out a bit of steam as it started off.

I took this image this past summer in Michigan.  I saw several types of waterbirds this particular evening on the shore of Lake Erie.  I captured this Canada Goose out for a swim and I liked the light and bit of reflection in the water.

Well, it's been Spring, then Summer, then Winter, then Summer.  What wacky weather.  I wish we would get some rain though, it's so dry.  I took this image last Friday during our short Spring of some Ornamental Pear tree blossoms.  This is actually a focus stack of 2 images to bring out details in the 2 main blossoms but yet still keep a nice soft background.
