Nature Photography

Butterfly in a Butterfly Bush
We went on a day trip to Creston, CA. and these are just a few of the photographs that I took. In the sky the clouds were forming, it was humid and a fall storm was coming but held off until our drive home. We took a walk around this lake and enjoyed nature and all her gifts, but when I came across these butterfly bushes I was captured in the moment and couldn't leave. I was so enchanted with the butterflies & soon to come hummingbirds I had stay and capture the moment in photographs. Leon and Sammie left me as they easily tired of waiting for me to capture that perfect shot. They even got a row boat and tried to sneak up on me, but I saw them coming. Patience paid off as I was able to capture more beautiful butterfly shots which was no easy task as they flew all around me as if to get me to leave their feeding grounds but I patiently waited for them to get used to me. I will share more photographs & telling s of our day later. So do come back soon~What was your favorite day trip lately? Were you able to capture any nature in the moment? *either by memory or camera.
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to the body and soul. ~John Muir
