Nice! Catch 'em while you can...the blossoms are so short-lived.

As usual, great pictures. Do you shoot aperture or shutter priority? My camera isn't as sophisticated as yours, but I do have those options. Now to just learn how to use them! Haven't used those for many years, from when I was shooting my Nikon SLR.

Depends. For fast subjects, I shoot shutter priority. For landscapes, aperture priority. And for certain subjects, full manual.
