Day 115, 116, 117, 118, 119
Well I'm slacking again in the daily posts, so here are the past 5 days of photos. Spring has sprung around here, the grass is green, the flowers are starting to bloom, and I am getting out looking for more photos which is the best part of the day.

Day 114

When I get stuck for a photo and think there is no way I will find anything to take of picture of I have to slow down and say to myself of course there are a zillion things to photograph. If you look at things from a different angle that will usually do the trick. I don't know about you but I never really realized there was writing on the back of fire hydrants.

Patterns http://www.boncarophotography.com/blog/2013/4/patterns


Day 113

I love to try to find patterns in things natural or man made. I happened to see this iron bench outside and antique shop on my way home from work and liked the white against the red but when I got up close the patterns the shadows made were even better, it is kind of nice getting a surprise once you get up close to something.

A Weird Week of Weather http://www.boncarophotography.com/blog/2013/4/a-weird-week-of-weather


Day 108, 109, 110, 111

We had really warm and really cold, warm enough for no jacket and cold enough to snow, and lots of rain and even more wind, so yes it is spring in western New York. Can't wait to see what the upcoming week brings!

One For the List http://www.boncarophotography.com/blog/2013/4/one-for-the-list Day 104

We had a rare visitor this weekend, an American Avocet, a bird that is rarely if ever found in this part of the world. Not sure how it got here but there is was, right on the shore of Seneca Lake just looking around for some food and enjoying the day. I'm so glad birders are a sharing group, there were emails and posts flying through the air letting everyone know that there was a 'rare bird alert', without those alerts I never would have seen this life list bird.

Bright Blue http://www.boncarophotography.com/blog/2013/4/bright-blue Day 103

I ventured out today even though it was gray and a bit rainy, I figured what the heck maybe I'll see something that was worth getting wet to take a picture of. Well I found my favorite bird, a couple of eastern bluebirds were out and about, and it wasn't even raining! The sky had brightened and the blue feathers were bright against the trees, I couldn't miss them. One landed in a pine tree and posed for me, brightening up my gray rainy day.

Flowers! http://www.boncarophotography.com/blog/2013/4/flowers Day 102

Finally the flowers are starting to bloom, they might be all wet because it won't stop raining but they are blooming. Finally adding a little color to the world, and welcome color it is.

Yes It Is Spring http://www.boncarophotography.com/blog/2013/4/yes-it-is-spring Day 101

Well despite the ice on the trees and all the rain it is spring, you can see the trees starting to bud, or trying to. All I can hope for is that April showers do in fact bring May flowers!

Day 100 http://www.boncarophotography.com/blog/2013/4/day-100  

Day 98, 99, 100

So it's the first 100 days of the year only 265 left! The year is flying by, which it is, it's funny how time flies by but with the photo of the day it's very interesting to see what has past and compare it to last year. One thing I noticed was that the first flowers in bloom last year was on March 12 a whole month early, this year the flowers are barely sprouting but I am watching for them, every day, I can't wait!

Wind http://www.boncarophotography.com/blog/2013/4/wind Day 97

It ended up being a good weekend, it didn't rain today as the weathermen predicted which was great. It was warm and windy which made the lake rough and angry looking. But that didn't stop the sailboats or a few kite surfers, they know how to take advantage and make the wind work for them.

A Lovely Day http://www.boncarophotography.com/blog/2013/4/a-lovely-day Day 96

Today was the first nice weekend day, start to finish, that I can remember in a long time. I didn't have to wear my coat and the sun was out, the birds are starting to come back and the trees are starting to come alive. There is hope yet that it will actually warm up!
