Spring came very early to Stockholm this year. The Chinese witch-hazel flowered in mid Februray.
As did the Snowdrops.
And the Winter aconite.
First week in March, the ants came out.
A week later, the crocuses flowered.
As did the Alpine Squill.
The squills and the crocuses brought the bees out.
At the end of March, the blue squills where joined by yellow Gagea.
As well as purple Liverwort.
And flowering Sakura.
Swedish Whitebeam. My favourite tree bud.
Ant in Rhododendron
Beatles in Oxeye daisy.
Tiny bee in flower,
Not so tiny bee in flower.
Coot chick getting clean.
Common Winter Damsel - the earliest dragonfly you find during spring in Sweden.
Common goldeneye ducklings.
Caterpillar. Not sure what type.
The arrival of Azure Bluets signals the end of Spring and the beginning of Summer.
Mating Azure Bluets.
