Taken last spring with a Nikon E8800.
I planted the tripod in the bush and stood freezing for a while until the bush stopped trembling before I could take the shot.
This is about 60% of the original which I needed to crop so that some detail would be visible on the 500 pixel image for Epz. (It still prints well at 8x6)

Camera:Nikon COOLPIX 8800 Check out Nikon Nation!
Lens:38-380
Recording media:ISO 50
Title:Herald of Spring
