This is a shot Julie Orr took a couple weeks ago on our hike up at Lower Cataract Lake. We took the nice little butterfly on the flower and then started playing with that new software package I mentioned in my last post. What resulted is a bit abstract. And dark. And ominous. And lush. And I just freakin’ love it.

I have to talk Julie in getting serious with a camera. She has an eye.

Shot these in the Butterfly Garden, which is unconfined space, at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. These are Queen Butterflys, which land and sit because (according to the docent) most birds cannot distinguish them from Monarchs, which have a bad taste.
