I Heart Macro 3-18-12

studio waterstone
Welcome back! What a wonderful week it was here in Wisconsin! We hit temperatures in the 80's this past week. I think spring is here, or are we skipping Spring and heading right into Summer? Kim and I spent a couple of days out in Nature this week since the weather was so beautiful. It is wonderful to see more and more signs of life out there, whether its plant, animal, or insect life, doesnt matter to us! I hope you enjoy my photos. Have a wonderful week and get out there and enjoy all Mother Nature has to offer!

 One of the first Butterflies to come back in the spring is the beautiful Gray Comma Butterfly. It is drinking sap from this tree.
 Moss is shooting up new growth.

 Look at those beady little eyes!

 Yup, it's Spring :)

Stunning shots - love the colors on the butterfly wings, gorgeous! I also love the green of the moss and the red of the beady little eyes!

That black and red/orange bug is totally cool! The moss is amazing, too - all your macros today are fabulous. The butterfly has beautiful wings, doesn't he?!!
