If you haven't noticed, I have been snapping photos, a lot of them. I am really enjoying my camera and now that I am much more familiar with it. When I find a subject matter that I enjoy, I take an enormous amount of photographs of it. I try out different lighting/times of day (if possible) and different angles.
My in-laws put in a new bird, bee and butterfly garden has given me great inspiration and great subject matter to just keep snapping. I am sure before my trip is over I will have another great handful of photos to share. This group of shots is of one type of flower and butterfly.
Flower: Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus' or the common name of Magnus Purple Coneflower
Butterfly: Boloria bellona or the common name of Meadow Fritillary
(side note: I believe that is the correct info for the butterfly, I had to look at several guides on the internet and none of them had a great photo, but I did what I could. If I am wrong, please correct me.)
I love all of these photos and can't wait to show off even more of scenic Vermont.
