Proof of Spring

Proof of Spring
There's a dead tree trunk next to the cellar door here at Bergdalen. It is the home of a few hundred Firebugs. They are a good indication of the arrival of Spring. This year they sent out this little guy to see if it was time to come out. He reported back that it was. Oh, and this shot was pretty enough to make it to my morning paper where it was published yesterday as a sign of spring!

Everyone is talking about spring all of a sudden, including several members much farther north than here. This is a great picture. It inspires me to go look for spring myself.

Congratulations on your new-found notoriety. Not many of us get pictures in newspaper. Good on you!

Cool!
If it was shot here, it would be still encased in ice.

Stefan, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the joy your photos brought my Dad these last couple of years. He loved your pictures. He passed away in February. Sorry to leave an anonymous comment but I couldn't find an email address for you. Thanks again, Stefan. "For Earl, 1930-2013"
