Things are picking up though. I have spotted a few yellow rump warblers flittering about. Last week I spotted my first dragons of the year, green darners, and I have spotted a couple of tiger swallowtail flying by. These signs mean that soon I will have more subjects to photograph then I know what to do with. Possibly viceroy butterflies like in these pics that I photographed last summer at Eagle Bluff in southern Minnesota. Is anyone else getting impatient like I am?

Signs of Spring and Viceroy Butterflies.
The month of April has been kind of tough here in Minnesota this year. We have not had snow or cold weather, like is certainly possible here in the frozen north, in fact this year has been quite the opposite with many days already making it up into the 70s. The problem is that even though it feels like the end of May, with warm sunny days, green grass, and leaves on all of the trees it is still just April. So each day I go out expecting to fnd warblers or dragonflies or any of the other things that I like to photograph in May and June but they are not here yet it is just too early.
