I have been photographing the Cherry Blossoms in the Historic District of Hot Springs, Arkansas for the past five years. Last year I discovered Sparrows mate among the beautiful blossoms Happy Spring 2014 – Sparrows Dance of Life.
This year I learned they pick and eat the flowers. I was curious to know why are these birds were eating the buds and blossoms? The simple answer is that they are highly nutritious. Some experts believe the blooms have more nutritional value than buds giving flower eating birds an advantage in late winter and or early spring when food can be scarce.

It's nice to finally see an overbuilt solar home lighting system that performs the way its meant to. d.light Design's D20 solar home lighting system has impressed me because it is built for the developing world where off the grid is the only option and where durability and functionality are what drives design.
While most solar lighting that we see on the market has the quality of those solar patio lights that end up in the trash every fall, this setup is built for real-world use, making it ideal for your backwoods cabin, hot tent, lakeside boat house, or wherever you'll need...

Rain, snow, ice bombarded the forming Cherry Blossom Buds twice this year. I was delighted to see that some buds had survived and were opening to reveal waves of pink. As I set up my first shot I noticed a light fog rolling off the surrounding mountains to caress the delicate new blossoms.
