We made a quick visit to my g/f's parents place this afternoon, and noticed that the crabapple tree in the backyard is starting to bloom.

No matter what angle you looked at the tree, there was a white flower contrasting against the green background. It was hard to decide which to shoot, and harder to decide which to show on this blog.

While taking the above photos, I had this little guy watching me and letting out the occasional chirp. These little house sparrows are pretty common and I see them all over the place, but they usually don't sit still long enough for a picture.

Changing angles for another picture of the bird let me shoot more into the sky for a silhouette. I had to share this one because I love the haphazard lines created from the branches, and the perfect formation of the bird, right down to his beak.

I like that last one. It is totally like something I would put up on my wall.
