Butterflies

I took these pictures back in April, I've been diving deeper and deeper into photography.  I love it, I really do.  These were taken at a butterfly exhibit at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle.  Pretty cool place to explore.  I had never been to the butterfly exhibit before, so this was a treat...

(all of these were taken with with a 35mm lens, f/3.5, 1/80 sec, ISO 200)






Butterflies are so delicate and beautiful.  Although I've heard of quite a few people who are actually afraid of them?  Really?  Do you have any strange phobias about insects?

It's that time of year, again.

Summer has come and gone, the days are getting shorter, the nights are cooler and longer.  Boy, has it started to rain.  The leaves are falling, the garden is slowly turning brown.  Pumpkins and squash are plentiful and the furnace has finally been turned on.  It's officially fall and that crafty itch has struck me once again.  What a better time to prepare for Christmas giving than right now?  After all, it is only two months away!  Can you believe that?  I know I don't post here much, three little kids, going to school, and applying for grad school have been keeping me plenty busy.  However, now that Christmas is on it's way...

I'd like to do less of this



















And more of this...
