Spring Into Action

I haven't had a chance to do much photography since my Death Valley trip. The arrival of spring has inspired me a little more.

I've carried my camera into the office several times in the past couple of weeks. I've taken a few pictures and I finally downloaded them all today. Here are a few of those images:

This is from one of the magnolia trees in front of my office. The blooms make me believe that it is really spring.

While walking to the office, I often see interesting scenes and say to myself, "I wish I had my camera with me." On this day, I had it and was able to capture this lady feeding the birds:

Last week we had visitors. Charles' college friend, Dave, and his family came to see D.C. during their spring break. Yesterday we joined them on a trip to the National Zoo.

They didn't have any signs posted identifying which panda was which but I think that this is Tai Shan, the youngest panda.

I love prairie dogs (which aren't really dogs at all). This guy seemed to be looking right at me.

Usually when I see the lions, they are sleeping. Yesterday, however, they were out and about - and were even being playful.

Jacquelyn posed with many of the statues that are all over the zoo.

Charles and Dave.

Every so often, I actually get to be in the pictures.
