1/80s, f6.3, 800ISO, autoWB, 90mm Tamron macro.

The sumac (Rhus typhina) buds are still small and the new twigs are very hairy.

My basil seedlings are now getting big, perhaps too large as I can’t yet plant them out.

While looking for macro subjects on this warm afternoon, I saw a spider web on a nannyberry that led me to notice rapidly moving stoneflies (Plectoptera), some of which were mating. I’ve take photos of stoneflies on Viburnum lentago before leading me to wonder if they have a particular liking for this shrub. This is also the earliest that I’ve seen these spring stoneflies about, not surprising since we’ve had such warm weather.
