Did you know? A butterfly is a mainly day-flying insect of the order Lepidoptera, which includes the butterflies and moths. Like other holometabolous insects, the butterfly’s life cycle consists of four parts: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Most species are diurnal.
Spring finally comes to the old New England farm.
Artist Jeff Burgess says: “This is how I like to see flowers presented. There is considerable interest in the background as well as the foreground. Very nice work!”
About the photograph: After a long, long, cold and snowy winter here in the Upper Valley region, the first signs of spring were a welcomed site. At one point I wasn’t sure if the snow piles would melt in time to see the daffodils but fortunately it did.
For this photograph of a bunch of yellow daffodils, I wanted to capture the bright yellow of the flowers against a more monochromatic background to make them pop. I also wanted an old time vintage feel so I gathered some old gardening props and a vintage colored canning jar. To think I almost tossed that rusty old shovel head into the metal recycling. I shutter to think. Light from the side with a studio light and soft box, I wanted to mimic the light of a perhaps the sun pouring in from a shed window or a barn door. The image was further enhanced in post processing to give it a three dimension feeling. I was quite pleased with the overall composition and effect. There is probably eight hours of work behind what appears to be a causal image.
Magnolia trees blooming in early spring in front of a Back Bay brownstone home in Boston.
Artist Linda Lees says “Lovely capture of this beautiful magnolia tree in flower!”
Early spring means maple sugar time in New England! Sap dripping out of a maple tree tap into a galvanized pail. Sometimes you can walk by a row of tapped trees and hear the gentle “plink” of the drips into the pail.
The spring Daffodil with its bright cheery yellow or white petals is always a welcome after a long gray winter, as they are one of the first bulb flowers to appear in the spring.
Out of the otherwise brown and bare landscape, Daffodils are among the first plants to welcome the new spring season.
