Dogwood Flower

The tulips at the arboretum are almost gone. Most have been replaced by colorful ground cover. I was hoping to spend some more time there but 5pm came too fast and a guy on a cart was driving around clearing the garden of all us stragglers. The sunlight was beautiful so I was taking several shots of the dogwood with various amounts of light when I finally just had to leave. Which flowers come after the tulips? I will soon find out.

Blue Heron with Red Straw

Sunset Bay was just full of activity tonight. The DPD officers that patrol the lake stopped to talk for a while. I saw the Canada Geese fly in and a Blue Heron found a red straw. I missed a few action shots which just makes me want to get the new Nikon even more. I think I have proven to myself that I can be consistent with photography so with careful budgeting the new camera should be a good investment.
