bee on bloom



The flower doesn't dream of the bee. 

It blossoms and the bee comes.”

Yellow Green Market

A MeetUp Group, New Way Photography hosted a composition photographing exercise using only cell phones or tablets. We met up the Yellow Green Market, a local fresh foods and goods open air market place. It was full of fun things to shoot. Here are a few of my photos.

This one booth had racks and racks of incense. This is only a small section. Imagine it going up in smoke.

stairway to heaven

On a recent photowalk with a friend in Delray Beach, I snapped this stairway in monochromatic. I loved the way the light and shadows hit it.
Enjoy...

what puts Garden in Butterfly Garden

The flora and fauna at Butterfly Gardens are filled with amazing buds. Pictured here are just a handful of what it there. It saddened me to witness so many people rushing by these beauties. I was so appreciative that my camera helped me look at these up close and personal. I hope you enjoy them too.

Butterfly World is also host to many other winged creatures.

BUGS - MACRO



I was so excited to capture these little creatures on my photo safari. Especially this one with the butterfly on the banana. Butterflies feed by putting their proboscis (rolled up tongue) down the flower's stem and sucking up the nectar.

Butterfly World



Butterfly World is located in Coconut Creek, Florida. It began as a hobby and has grown to be a center to help preserve and educate. Butterflies live on average 7 days on the outside, and 14 days within Butterfly World. 

Blue Morpho
The blue morpho is among the largest butterflies in the world, with wings spanning from five to eight inches. Their vivid, iridescent blue coloring is a result of the microscopic scales on the backs of their wings, which reflect light. The underside of the morpho’s wings, on the other hand, is a dull brown color with many eyespots, providing camouflage against predators such as birds and insects when its wings are closed.
This was the fastest flying butterfly and capturing the one and only photograph was a challenge.

Of course, I had to shoot some texture. This is a closeup of the rope bridge.
