I have never been more happy for spring! This was a tough, long winter, so the second things started to warm up and the flowers started appearing, I jumped at the chance to run outside with my camera. I used my trusty macro lens on my Nikon and spent a few hours near my house in Durham as well as on the campus of UNC at Coker Arboretum in Chapel Hill, NC taking photographs.
I think I have at least 500 close ups of cherry blossoms! And the bees were an awesome bonus! I feel like it's not often that you find the opportunity to get so many photographs of bees, but they were swarming the trees, so when one moved another was nearby.
I look forward to new blooms and sharing new nature photography throughout the spring!
