It’s spring! Admire the hound’s tongue, and the rest

March 20, 2013

Welcome spring! It’s that exciting moment of the year when you can do crazy things like balance a raw egg on its end. But the vernal equinox is so much more than a physics trick.

Looking to nature for signs of spring is a beloved sport among Bay Area wildlife enthusiasts. We’ve been scouring Bay Nature’s amazing Flickr group and noticed Bay Area photographer Tony Iwane’s beautiful blooms (below). And we’d love to see what images  you’ve been snapping of spring (flowers or otherwise). Please send them to: and we’ll post them for others to enjoy.

We’ve been adding your photos to this slideshow, so keep ’em coming!
