Of course, we humans are not the only ones anxiously awaiting fresh growth. The gophers (Richardsons ground squirrels) took a somewhat destructive interest in these miniature tulips!

These few tulips got a head start in a warm sheltered spot beside a window.


There are a few butterflies around. I'm guessing they overwintered? Which would fit with their raggedness.


These are more results from the little Sony RX100m2. I see the Mark 3 has just been announced, but I'm not sure it's got enough new or improved to justify switching. It has an electronic viewfinder, but I haven't really felt too much need for it. And it has even less of a telephoto where I'd rather have more.
