Early last week I attended a butterfly photography class at Powell Gardens during their Butterfly Festival. There were different butterflies from North and Central America, but the star of the show was the Blue Morpho. Notice how the blue is on only one side of the wing?
The butterfly in the last two pictures is the White Peacock.
Hopefully I will post more of Powell Gardens later. They have the most beautiful chapel on the grounds as well.
Visit Yosemite or, oh heck, visit every national park in the U.S.

There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
