Spring in NW Montana


last years flowers
look at the tiny little seed holder
a vessel that has endured through sun, wind, rain and snow~
~
tiny little flowers
looked like a grass flower to me


i thought this was a tiny bee, but it is a fly, just two wings

looks like a healthy tree
but covered in wooly aphids, they look healthy too


sweet smelling
wonderful healing 
arnica returns


 this warm week will deepen springs growth

  7. Arnica already - you're so much ahead of us, Tammie. It has been snowing non-stop here. Tomorrow, we'll venture west over the pass and look for sunshine and spring. It must be somewhere! Be on the lookout for the Calypso Orchids! I'm depending on you.

  8. It's good to see the Arnica again! Waiting for it to bloom. Arrowleaf is blooming, so Arnica won't be far behind.

  9. I love all these signs of spring waking up and how you have captured each one so respectfully, even the woolly aphids which look as if they're part of the tree, catkin style!

  10. Lovely pictures Tammie.
    Your wings are on the American hoverfly, Eupeodes americanus. I knew it was a hoverfly, I looked up the technical details.

  20. Lovely images of the arrival of spring which could be overlooked without special attention. The patina of the withered and weathered seed vessels is so beautiful.

  21. Lovely shots, Tammie!
    I like the diptera from syrphidae family, it looks like a male with the eyes stuck together.
    The aphids make me laugh, we had some plants in our african garden covered with those aphids.
    Great to discover what arnica looks like, fresh!
    Keep well!
