You lookin' at me?

Uploaded: October 10, 2003


Auto; no flash; noontime. This fellow was waiting patiently in a butterfly bush for lunch, and wasn't the least bit intimidated by the camera.

Ruth, thank you so much for the compliment. I don't know if it was a lucky shot or if I'm finally doing something right, but I DO know that I was in the right place at the right time. Again, thanks! Jay

Thanks, Jean! I was lucky to have found this beauty in a butterfly bush (though not surprisingly since there was all KINDS of snacks flitting about her there). The "look" she is giving the camera is amazing to me. She truly looks fearless, doesn't she? See ya! Jay #386354
