The hackberry is mentioned in many songs related to spring and arrival of summer. I have been more actively out with the camera lately, since August – my youngest son is in the mood of nature photography at around 6 in the morning. I can only thank him for this! It is a great time being outdoors enjoying the beauty of the arriving summer. The sound world and the visual world combined with all the scents of the trees and flowers starting to blossom – WoW! It has been a long time ago when I actually photographed some birds, but now we managed to find some nice lights and species also in the early morning hour. Lily of the valley, hackberry, apple- and cherry trees…It is hard to ge tint words….just see it yourself!
