364/365 Maple buds

The first official day of spring, Friday was an incredibly busy day at work, to top off a very busy week in general, and I couldn't get out the door to head home until 6:00.

But when I finally made it home, before I shed my work gear for stretchy pants and fleece, I grabbed my camera and caught these buds in the sunshine.

They're new buds on a maple tree, which I noticed one evening this week. If you stretch your imagination, they kind of look like sea anemones hanging out on a branch.

How nice it would be to be photographing underwater life in a tropical location...

But I'm not, so I'll be happy with the first signs of spring.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/125s, f/4 at ISO 100 at about 7:00 p.m.
