My Quest

My quest for a decent photo of the elusive Ulysses butterfly that lives in my backyard continues. Today I took this


Pretty damn fine photo! But I stood still for SO long to take it that my arms hurt form the wieght of the camera and I may have some sunburn! Steve Parish, I am in awe of you!

I applaud your tenacity Tracey! It is very hard to capture a butterfly on camera. You did well!

Fantastic photo! It's so hard to get anything that moves erratically (insects, animals, kids..) to place themselves perfectly in the frame. I'm going to have a try a little harder to capture our ring-tailed possum in a photo.

Vicki- I haven't heard of birds and blooms before, so I googled it. Beautiful photography!
