Thank you very much for all the votes in the previous contest smile.gif

For this contest, the theme will be spring. I keep hearing about lovely spring weather, and cute little flowers. It's not that far along where I'm at, unfortunately, but the other day I did get a definite feeling of springtime, when the icicles started dripping in the sunshine. Have you seen similar signs of spring, or do you have a shot from a previous year? Show it to us! ^^


The Rules:
- One entry per person
- Picture has to be made by yourself and can't be just a reproduction of someone's work. If someone else's work is in the picture, there needs to be something extra.
- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.)
- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.
- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.
- You are free to submit an old photo; you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.


Closing date: Monday, April 9

OK here is mine - could have cone well in the last one too 'pink' - but here where I live we don't get ice and snow and the recognized signs of spring, but spring is when the hover-flies star to appear, so this says spring to me.

I agree with these others, Sparkle, butterfly ^^

Hawktalon: I have a weak spot for droplets, so I'd say sprouting ^^ In addition, that seems sharper than the other
