Camera Critter Saturday



Posted by Picasa
Last month when we went to the butterfly house at Reiman Gardens, my husband was the lucky one that a butterfly chose to land on, last year it was me that was the lucky one. We go to the butterfly house several times a year, but the only time we have had any land on us was in December, maybe they have the Christmas spirit then, not sure.

I love that first shot!
I am so envious. This is a great way to photograph butterflies. I saw two all last summer.
Love the bottle tree below and the other butterfly shots.
