…I might post something other than photos from our butterfly garden,





…but I wouldn’t hold your breath.

    No need to change anything, I love the seed pods – every stage. It’s all beautiful.

    Well, I wouldn’t rush into any non-butterfly garden posts just yet. I’ve decided to polish my photography skills on my new butterfly garden. 🙂

    Love them, and love looking at others as well as my own.

    We have milkweed in our yard, but I guess it’s too early for the monarch caterpillars in Maine. Last year we got one but I left it out in a rainstorm (it drowned). Don’t tell Rilla!

    Your photos are so beautiful. Do you have a particularly excellent camera?

  8. Melissa Wiley says:

    Hannah, thank you! It’s not super fancy–a Canon Powershot S5. Basically a point-and-shoot with a decent built-in zoom. It’s a little finicky, or else (more likely) I’m not using it properly, because it is very hard to get a decent picture in morning light. But it looooves afternoon light. It’s like I can’t get a *bad* shot after 4pm. In the morning, I have the devil of a time getting it to focus, and it won’t focus on zoomed-in shots at all. I missed a gorgeous shot of two caterpillars nose to nose this morning, one big fat one and one little thread of a guy, because the darn camera wouldn’t focus no matter what I did.

    One of these days I need to take the time to, you know, read the manual and figure out what I’m doing wrong.

    They’re beautiful shots Lissa. They’re eye candy. And you know how much I love pretty pictures. That last one especially. Look at those gorgeous locks!
