It’s Butterfly/Moth Photography Season!

Every year about this time the “weeds” in the pastures have amazing flowers that attract a wide variety of butterflies and moths. I set up my camera and tripod and then wait for them to flit by!

Good frontal view; see enlargement below.

Here’s a zoom in on the proboscis.

They love ironweed!

Second Book Draft on its Way!

Tuesday I received the first draft of my book from the printer. I loved it, but I found a couple of things I wanted to slightly tweak. Of course, that turned into changing out three photos, re-writing the last line of one poem, adjusting the color and brightness of several photos, and doing slight design edits to the cover. I’m hoping this will be the final draft!

Here’s some images from what I sent the printers. Photos of the real book coming soon!
