Well, between work and personal life, I haven't been out birding in quite a while and thus haven't posted any new photos. I also have not spent time keeping up on others blogs that I normally read which is something that I miss. Anyway, this last weekend though I had the opportunity to play with a nice macro lens so I spent time around the yard shooting some of the flowers and plants that my wife has planted. She has done a great job making our yard look colorful with all of the planting she has done. A few years back we got some Lupine seeds and planted them and this is the first year that they have bloomed.
