Chasing rainbows... southern Illinois...
Look closely. It's a double rainbow!
...and in St. Louis.
The arch. Spring trip to home sweet home, April, 2010.

Birdwatching at the Watershed Nature Center in Edwardsville, Illinois. I spy...

The shy Cardinal perched in the treetops. Why won't you look at me?:

The not-so-elusive Redwing Blackbird:

A ray of sunshine on a cloudy day, the Yellow Finch in its lemony glory:

The...wait a minute, that's fellow birdwatcher Grandma Aunt Adel!

And the Purple Finch enjoying a late afternoon snack. 
Not pictured: more finches and some sort of gray woodpecker (they ate and flew before I could snap a pic), as well as swallows, a gray heron and other wading birds, hundreds of Canada geese, and my mom who likes getting her picture taken even less than I do.

Magnolias in Prospect Park

Yay! Spring has finally sprung!
