Hi there... Bill, is that you?... I haven't seen you since Florida!

Nikon Z50, Nikon Z TC-2.0X, Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S @ 400mm (600mm equiv.), 1/500sec, f/8, ISO 100 (Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, November 2020)

After all that bird activity at Huntley Meadows Park late last year, I went back to the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens for one last 2020 visit, and what did I see...

Reprocessed this one with the new Nikon NX Studio. It will take me a while to adjust from the Capture NX-D workflow. And I am still using Lightroom Classic for the (minimal) finishing touches and the export to web size/color profile/JPEG...

Took a short drive to Coyote Valley at the South end of Silicon Valley and it's apparent spring is springing here. California fresh green and the new growth on local trees showing some subtle red and yellowish hues always seems to catch my eye this time of year; and while admittedly not a great shot, hopefully at least one that gives off a little bit of that feeling.

PS: I also have to say I really do love Nikon color!

Darin, my previous posted image was from the Maryland side! :)
I thought so... for the past 5+ years I‘ve only visited the Maryland side, and the POV in your photo was very familiar to me :)

"Bird in Flight" (#1 of series). Gunpowder Falls State Park. Hereford Area, Maryland
That park seems like a very nice place to visit... unfortunately it is outside of my normal travel distances these days :(
Anywho, I am getting ready for the Spring season at Huntley Meadows...
