Been waiting...

I have been waiting for two years to capture these huge bumble bees in my yard! The bushes they are attracted to apparently only bloom flowers every other year. The last time was in 2010 and I had just purchased a 55-200 lens and used it on my d40. I now have a D7000, learned how to shoot manually and studied photography and Photoshop and wanted to see if I could improve my shots- I think I did. Like the saying goes, "The only photographer you should compare yourself to, is the one you used to be."

Epcot Butterfly Garden

If you love butterflies, then, you will LOVE the Epcot Butterfly Garden. I try to go every time we go to Disney (not a prob when two of our favorite rides are there!) This time, my family went on a ride and let me stay in there as long as I wanted to. I wish I would have read a tutorial on photographing butterflies before I got in there, but then, I just relaxed and main thing- HOLD STILL! I was chasing them all over the place, but the key is to stand still and let them come to you. Once I did, I was able to get GREAT photos, I could be proud of! Someone was watching and asked me if the butterflies were posing for me. lol Hmmm, I don't know, but it worked. Let's just say, I took my camera down from my face only to be surrounded by a ton of other cameras. lol Whoa! Even someone with a tripod!
 Anyway here are some of the ones I liked the most:
