Sunday Snapshot - Spring up close

We live in Colorado, I LOVE Colorado except in early spring.  When the rest of the world seems to be in beautiful bloom, flowers here have to compete with unexpected snowstorms, an arid environment and poor growing conditions.

Perhaps since we have so few flowers it is a novelty.

Today my little guy came in all excited - MOM, there are flowers!!

Sure enough we had a patch of the prettiest little flowers.  I ran for my camera and almost changed out my lens.  Then I remembered how much I used to love photographing in macro.

And now I remember why.

I hate even to admit which darling child of mine has such disgusting fingernails.

And mittens - this cat was nice enough to be my subject too!

I shot these with a canon and the lens is a 100mm Macro.

    Happy Sunday!
