playing catch up so this is my second post for the day... i know you're tired of me by now!!!
Just wanted to let those new followers and UBBC participants know a little something about me. I hate moths, and it seems butterflies, and all things flappy and winged that may end up entangled in your eyelashes or such.
This is not a new affliction, it has been with me for a very, very long time. I recall standing on a chair in the kitchen one summer, probably early teens, and I was flapping a dish towel around my head trying to deter a poor moth from landing anywhere near me. This also involved a lot of screaming and hulabaloo!!!
So this weekend when we visited a particularly beautiful spot in South GA I was torn... torn right down the middle.... there were beautiful butterflies alighting gently on the lovely flowers... oooh great pic... but oooh they are butterflies!!!! That means a little flapping... and a little freakin' out by me.
but thankfully my super power kicked in and I could grab a couple of pretty shots, I love pictures of butterflies... just not being so close to the darn things themselves.......
and then there it is..... a Luna Moth.... oh yeah... in all it's gorgeous glory....and Syd had just given me a lesson on these the other day. She was beside herself to actually witness one, resting in the shade. Although the hairs on my neck were standing up to attention, I set the zoomy lens and grabbed a couple of shots... and very proud of them I am too. So, not only do I have a couple of gorgeous shots, the type I like best, I have managed to pull out my superpower again... the one where I stare adversity in the eye... and adversity blinks.
