    In Niagara Falls, near the Botanical Gardens, a very cool place (greenhouse style) is home to 100's of butterflies. We spent 2 hours touring this place, and had a wonderful time. A dark cloudy day, rainy, made for dim lighting conditions, and lots of discarded shots., but I saved a few.. Most of these were shot at f 5.6 100 sec, @ 300 mm hand held!

    Oh, beee-youtiful yet again! I envy you the time you were given (for us it was rush-rush last Saturday, my husband get kind of very impatient with me and my desires to take photos!), the equipment and... your outcome!

    You sure looked like him then, right?

    Here is a swallowtail, trying to take over my camera!! I don't think I have ever been in a place that had so many happy people having fun with nature. If anyone is interested in coming to Niagara, have a look through this website, to see all there is to SEE!!
