Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

Spring is a welcome season.

Especially after the long hard winter months.

I found it difficult to make my entry unique

so am just going with the theme in general- green shoots, blossoms and leaves and the old apple tree’s flowers.

Baseball is Spring -

and love!

Ohio Katydid and the Kids Via My Son Mark

A fun series to receive on the phone from my son Mark.

Looks like a depth of field exercise, too.

This is a “leaf bug” or katydid.  A relative of the grasshopper and also called a bush-cricket in some parts of the world.   Looks like such an interesting creature and is the perfection of camouflage.

Thanks Mark for sharing your Katydid and Kids study.  love you. Mom

Family of Four Walking at Alum Creek Dam

Hard to see them in the first photo.

My daughter -in- law was driving and I was the passenger.  Shot from a moving van.  They are walking above the Alum Creek Reservoir.
