Butterfly Workshop

I went to a butterfly workshop yesterday, sponsored by Crown Camera. On Fri night we got the lowdown from photographer Dennis H. and on Saturday morn we met at a secret location waaaay out in the sticks for the shoot. There were hundreds of butterflies! When they were flitting around me I felt like I was in a fantasy! Yeah, really cool. Though I dragged along extra gear, I really only shot with the Canon 100 mm L Macro.

Orchid Bloom in Black and White

Can't have too many photos of orchids! Here is a lovely black and white variation of my favorite flower, shot with the 40mm. And soon there will a new bloom to admire...

Pretty Dried Camellia

I like to make a little natural vignette in the yard; this is a dried camellia with a few green leaves for liveliness. The sun seems to be glowing in the center of the dry flower. I used the 40mm for a nice sharp picture.
