West Cornwall, Connecticut. Hiking along the Appalachian Trail with the Housatonic River behind me. This field and these hills are coming to life so fast they seem to have changed colors in just a few days. Of course with the march toward summer comes the march of insects in New England. I guess it’s worth it but when they’re buzzing in your ears you think fondly of winter.
Both of these images were taken with a Canon G11 “pocket” camera.
Ferns of all types are opening so fast now they’re only in this embryonic "fiddlehead" state for a few days.
