4/28/13 Signs of Spring at Morton Arboretum

This spring (or should I say winter?) has offered few chances to get out and enjoy Ma' Nature.  Finally, this weekend offered back-to-back days of nice conditions with temps into the mid 60's amidst mostly sunny skies.  Jenna and I visited one of our favorite "nature" places (Morton Arboretum) this afternoon to take in the signs of spring as there have not been too many thus far.  With storm season in the offing, it was nice to get out and give all of the camera gear a test.  My first chasing trip departs on May 10th, so be sure to check back for soon for storm chronicles!
Bumble bee in action!
Very common site in IL this time of the year...
