Shadow Shot Sunday 2: Wings


Would you believe I'm still uploading photos from a vacation we took over a year ago?

In my defense, there are literally hundreds of them to sort through. (It was, after all, the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque.) These are from a side trip to the butterfly house at the arboretum there.

Fresh shadows are hard to come by in Indiana just now, where the days are overcast, grey, and snowy. So as long as I'm fussing around in the files I thought I'd share a couple of shots from sunnier days.

I debated whether to Photoshop out that bokeh in the second one, but I kinda like it. What do you think?

Beautiful shadow shots for the day! I know what you mean about having to battle gray, overcast days!! We haven't had any snow, but lots of fog!! Hope your weekend is going well!

A good photo stands the test of time - and these do! The butterflies in their shades of mocha and bronze changes in color from to separate them from the sea if green plants. These views are great now or anytime!

Impossível não se encantar com borboletas. Elas me fazem querer ter asas também. Um abraço!
