Collectif Creativity: 24Apr2023

by Milo Smith

It is finally starting to look like Spring! 

I went out to document its arrival.  I got two nice shots of ice in the Garry River which is almost at flood level.  The cold nights make for interesting ice formations.

I also found a nice “abstract” in the water.

Fortunately, the warm days bring out Crocus flowers

many types of buds

Red Maple Buds.

and the first insect of the season, a lovely Mourning Cloak Butterfly.

  1. Great photos of spring, Milo…I thought the butterfly that met me, as I was cleaning my yard last week, was a moth. I see from your photo it’s a butterfly. What a pleasure it was to see so early into spring!Thanks Milo…Now looking forward to seeing these!Sent from Samsung tablet
