Something so wonderful about the maple blooms in spring -- new life! But apparently, it's also the year of the whirly-copters! I can do without those! :)

Really amazing!! I love how you shot this from the back so that the bud bursts away from us - a unique perspective. Also, it is a very crisp macro, and the light is perfect. Congrats on a great shot!!

Karen- So nice to find you...again.(we have both done small stones...)This is my first venture into, "I heart macro" and I am thinking I will like it very much. Your image is a nice contrast of textures and great color. I am glad spring is here.
