I spent about 15 minutes this afternoon making good use of my zoom lens at the shop. I hesitate to even make this post, because it so obviously shows that my weeding duties have been neglected lately. But, on the bright side of things, letting the weeds run a bit wild this year in our tree line has attracted hoards of little butterflies. So, if anyone asks, I'll just say that I was intentionally creating habitat for natural wildlife. Yeah, that sounds legitimate.
Side note: it never seems like butterflies are moving very quickly until you attempt to photograph them. After snapping over 100 pictures, these are my best shots. After this little project, I have renewed appreciation for the patience that wildlife photographers must have.
