The money shot

16 Jul

Last Saturday my lovely wife Robin (or Rib) and I went for a photo walk around Lake Wehrspann near Omaha. As we walked, we tried to take some nice photos of flowers, birds, and other wildlife we observed along the path. When we first began the walk I saw some butterflies and told Robin that I would dearly love to capture a monarch butterfly in a digital shot. Sure enough we found one with large enough wings to warrant spending some time to get a nice shot. I spent close to 10 minutes trying to get just the right shot of this beautiful creature. Below are three pictures of my efforts. The final one is the “money shot”.

    Definitely a money shot! Funny how your little kodak digital can take better pictures than my canon digital rebel.

    Wonder if it’s operator error? That’s what I’m guessing!!

    Sure was a fun day – great time and great pictures.
