MBVP (More Boring Vacation Pictures)

First of all, just to prove that I was there (at the Butterfly Palace) and a willing victim of the photographic process, I offer the picture below:

 

Notice the look of unfettered joy on the faces of those who have joined me in this picture. Of course, I warned them. *Ahem*

I have quite a few pictures from the Palace, which I will publish occasionally. For now - I like this one:

 

I also like this one - which landed on SWMBO.

 


The pictures above are JPEGs as they came out of the camera - except the middle one, which was cropped.

What a friendly little fellow!!
The pink in his wings matches Annie's blouse. Stunning detail, lovely!

"Butterfly on a Boob". I like that one, the cotton and the wings seem to have the same texture, and the pink and brown are perfect together.

Not boring pictures at all!

Thanks for sharing your pics.

The butterfly is one of my icons that I use in my drawings and paintings. I call mine the "butterflag".

Nice group shot.

And I adore your butterfly photos. The last one against her pink shirt is incredibly clear and sharp. Butterflies are so beautiful :)
It's the whole part before them being butterflies that gives me the willies.

I love butterflies, or 'flutterbies' as I like to call them.

Great shots, very clear.

Loraine said...

I love butterflies. And they apparently love SWMBO.

Patsy said...

Looking forward to more butterfly shots.

The picture of the butterfly on SWMBO's shirt is quite clear. I love the brown against the pink shirt and the other details on the butterfly just pop out.

Ree said...

I love butterflies! (And your family looks very happy to be in that picture with you!)

Wonderful pictures!

You inspired me yesterday and last night at the book store I picked up a "how to" photography book hoping to glean some helpful tidbits. Alas, I need to really take the TIME needed to learn photography. TIME isn't something that I have currently. Someday? I will. Along with a spiffy new camera.

Jientje: Yeah, he is pretty cool.

Shadow: It seems that girls like them a lot - even though they're bugs.

Nan: Thank you, Nan. But not quite on the boob.

Moneythoughts: Yes, I know.

Momisodes: Me too. Don't much care for caterpillars.

Calicobebop: It's not overly large - but what's there is quality.

Employee: Thank you, Linda.

Loraine: Yeah, well, I think they must see pink real good.

Patsy: They're alright, most of the time.

Warriorwitch: Thank you, ma'am. I like 'em.

Joyce-Anne: I turned out to be a good shot.

Ree: Dad paid.

Hyphen Mama: Now THAT is flattering - that I could inspire you to buy a photo book.
