Here are recently captured signs of spring, which officially began Wednesday.

PRO TIP: This photo was shot using a macro lens which alows you to get extremely close to your subject, opening up your photography to a new world of possibilities. Don't have an SLR? Most cameras have a macro function - its symbol usually looks like a small flower. CAMERA: Canon EOS-1D Mark IV LENS: EF100mm f 2.8L Macro IS USM SETTINGS: Aperture f/14 Shutter Speed 1/100 ISO 400
