It's here!!

FINALLY! After what seemed like forever, my new camera finally arrived. I can't tell you how good it felt to have a camera again -- I almost cried when I saw it! I'm going to keep this blog entry short -- now that things are starting to return to normal, I want to spend more time taking pictures and less time talking about them. So, let's get on with it!

I thought the best way to break in the new gear would be to shoot one of my favorite subjects: butterflies. So, that's just what I did, and the camera performed flawlessly. I was able to capture several species that I hadn't seen before. Feast your eyes on these beauties, and remember that you can see these and many others in my Butterflies Gallery.

In the coming weeks, I have a Boundary Waters trip planned, among other things, so I should have more photos to display. Until then, take care.

A Paper Kite, also known as a Rice Paper butterfly or a Tree Nymph butterfly.


An Atala butterfly, also known as a Coontie Hairstreak.

A Red Spot Diadem butterfly hangs beneath a coneflower.

A Dark Blue Pansy. (Not what I'd want to be called if I was a butterfly.)

A Malaysian Lacewing.

An Emerald Swallowtail.

A Julia butterfly.

A Cydno Longwing.

A Common Mormon. (Does that mean it doesn't drink coffee?)
