Visitors to the garden.

I'm housesitting this week and have been enjoying sitting in the garden in the evenings after work. Brought my long lens with me exactly in the hopes of capturing some of the critters who don't like humans to get too close. These are my three favorite shots.

Bumblebee on a snapdragon


Common whitetail dragonfly


Swallowtail butterfly - In the excitement of the moment of seeing this butterfly land within the reach of my lens, I forgot to check the aperture before I snapped the shot. It was pretty blown out but through the magic of photoshop, I was able to redeem it. I think it looks rather ethereal.

Thank goodness for Photoshop, hey?

Very smart of you to bring your long lens.

4. The dragonfly had clipped my hair the night beofre,

so I went home expressly to get the lens, hoping the garden was her regular haunt.

7. So very nice!

It paid off for you = these are great finds upon downloading.
I like them all, but the second one is my favorite, it's a little work of art.
