This was a really quick shot; I probably could have polished it some more, but its a lazy Saturday…

Two images for today … I was at the NCBG again today. I think I saw 30+ butterflies in one area of the garden.

Sounds better than “shrubbery, shrubbery, shrubbery”! Though that has me thinking of Monty Python…

I just crossed the 10k photo mark in my main Lightroom catalog.  The breakdown is roughly 3,200 “old” photos -  these include random scans of old prints and pictures from my first digital camera (a 3MP Olympus from 2001) – and around 6800 pictures I’ve kept since November 2008 when I got my Rebel XSi.

Nearly SOOC w/ this shot – just .25 exposure adjustment (down) in lightroom for post. This guy made a gigantic web, around 12-16″ across. There’s one flaw in this shot that bugs me, but it was the best of the set. Guess you can’t always have everything you want.
