sun on butterfly

I took this picture after work today. I'd taken several pictures with my flash going off and the butterfly was losing patience with me. This is the butterfly trying to escape my camera and me taking a desperation shot against the sky as it winged away from me.

It's a little out of focus and very overexposed but I like the effect. The sky isn't right tho...

sunset a few weeks ago

This is a picture of a sunset a few weeks ago that I took in my backyard. The trees you see are in this area of my side yard where I have a few trees and shrubs. That's where I take most of my pictures of bees and butterflies.

low lake = dirty lake

There's been a long drought in SC where I was paddling. As a result, the level of this lake/stream is over 4 feet below normal. This means that I can't paddle up some of the streams I usually do, and also that one Hell of a lot of trash and nasty stuff is revealed. The open lake itself doesn't look all that bad, but in the nooks and crannies there's a lot of debris revealed that is normally buried underwater. :-(
