Butterfly refreshment . . .


I chased many butterflies at Mt. Rainier on the 4th and 5th day there. One of these days you will get to see the others. They were too fast to use my digital zoom on but I think I captured them nicely anyway. This photo will enlarge if you CLICK on it. When I check on the flower with my leaflet downstairs, I will let you know the name of this white beauty. Katney won't believe that I have forgotten it. . . HEY! I will blame it on the high temperatures we have been having. It is a Sitka Valerian.

The shot is simply wonderful. No care if we don't know the names of flowers or butterflies, we can enjoy their beauty!

I side with Malyss - the photo is the important thing. Not the name.

PS Don't use the digital zoom (only the optical) - software does the job much better later.

I too love taking pictures of butterflies. This one is gorgeous.

This was a very good shot. I know, from experience, Butterflies are hard to capture on film with a point & click.

That's a beautiful butterfly, and I think you did a nice job of capturing it with your camera.

I don't think I've ever gotten suchy a good butterfly shot. The flower is sitka valerian.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
