The First Sign of Warmer Days

In mid-March, the first strawberries of the season caught my eye.  I may sound like a dork, but it's really exciting.  My mind starts racing - strawberries, berries, cherries, peaches, nectarines, apricots.  It's all on it's way and summer is just around the corner!

I really love this shot - how the contrasting colors pop and the way I was able to capture the strawberry so closely.
