My favorite season for nature photography is just around the corner - I think. Today was a little warmer, although cloudy, so some bugs and young plants are emerging and I got out the camera. These photos were all taken just north of the Greenville Y at a turnout I've been calling my "milkweed spot." Actually, I have two such places, the other one being near the fairgrounds on Lee Road. No evidence of milkweeds yet, except for these bursting pods that survived the winter snows. I assume the seeds are still viable. Within 50 yards of my parking spot, I have found all five local milkweeds blooming at the same time. They all attract a good variety of interesting insects. I can hardly wait.
