Camera love

I stalk butterflies, and hummingbirds (with the camera). Gotta get those hummingbird photos fast because they're fattening up right now for the long flight south. They will be flying south in a week or two! Here are my very first photographs of hummingbirds and butterflies, taken over the past 3 days.

Pipevine Swallowtail.

Hi kate. I didn't know it was a pipevine swallowtail either until somebody who photographs a lot of butterflies educated me. He also told me what the Painted Lady was. It's so exciting to find out the names of these species, isn't it?!

Amazing pictures, incredible! I really need to buy a better camera or just learn how to take pictures period!

You must be a really patient person, those are fantastic. I love that you got it so close up, the detail is so clear.

Your pictures are stunning! I'm sorry to hear that you're jobless again, but your free time is so very obviously being put to good use! I don't know what kind of camera you have, but your hummingbird shots are exquisitely clear! Please keep the pictures coming!
