Photos by Chablis - Springtime


Spring is in the Air (In Kentucky!!!)

One of my favorite things to take pictures of is flowers, and springtime in Kentucky is the perfect opportunity to get some great shots.  Our lilac is blooming and we cut big bunches and bring them into the house.  I love the scent of lilac!
 



 
The azalea's are also in bloom....
 

 
And don't forget about the tulips....
 
 
The yard is getting some springtime visitors...
 

Some shots from around the lake....




But these were my favorites - I got the chance to get a few pictures of a hummingbird! I have only had the chance to see a hummingbird a few times in my life and have never had the chance to actually get pictures of one. They are SO fast that I only managed to get a few shots but the ones I did manage to get were totally worth it! He (she?) is totally cute.  If you look closely, you'll see him in both photos below....
 

 
Thanks for coming by and checking out my pictures!  Chablis

  1. Those are some gorgeous photos Chablis! The flowers are so bright and colourful... definitely springtime! :o)

    I can't pass up a chance to photograph pretty flowers... I went a bit flower crazy on last Sunday's hike, the canyon was covered with lovely little wildflowers... and now I have over 200 photos to deal with! :p
