This little bunny chose a perfect time to come out and enjoy some early morning sunshine on this Easter Sunday. I found it as I went out this morning visiting a wetland area of Grand Haven, Michigan. Temperatures should pass 70 today in West Michigan with lots of sunshine :)

Remnants of Winter

Some of Winter’s snow remained today in a wetland area of Holland, Michigan. I found this Great Blue Heron there amidst the reeds and melting snow. It was feeling like Spring as temperatures approached 50F (10C) in West Michigan with tomorrow expected to reach 60F (15.55C). (click on the image to see an enlarged more detailed view)

In celebration of reaching 10,000 followers to my blog, I’m posting one of my favorite subjects in nature, a dragonfly. I’m looking forward to Spring and Summer when I’ll be able to see more of these beautiful creatures in their varying colors and patterns. Thanks so much to all for your continued interest in my blog as I attempt to convey some of the beauty and wonders in nature to you!

Blue Sky Kind of Day

It was a beautiful blue sky kind of day in West Michigan. I went looking for some birds who might be out in those blue skies and was happy to see these on and around some pine trees. One had just taken off from another branch while the other remained perched on its own.

I found this wooded area in Ottawa County, Michigan covered with fresh snow. The dark waters of a river separated the blanket of white on each of its banks. (click on the image to see an enlarged version)

I found these clumps of golden dune grass peaking through snow banks today near the shores of Lake Michigan at Grand Haven State Park.

I found this colorful pair of Green Herons resting in a tree that overlooked a wetland area earlier this year in Southwest Michigan. I’ve seen them hunting for frogs and fish there in the past.

I found this area on a nearby Michigan farm with golden colored rows in the foreground and interesting clouds coming in from the west.

 

Lines of Symmetry

This image from my files was taken last May in a wetland area of Southwest, Michigan. With Christmas approaching, the green theme seemed somehow appropriate. I liked the symmetrical look the lines created as the tree trunks reflected in the pond.

Forest Floor in Autumn

I noticed this Oak leaf resting on some green moss today while walking through a wooded area in Muskegon, Michigan. The intricate veins throughout the leaf structure looked interesting to me. This particular example must have fallen recently as it appeared more fresh than the surrounding leaves.
