Getting Up Close

Day one of my eight-day vacation. I ambled lazily through it, grocery shopping and watching the World Cup finals. And of course on the way to the grocery store I went through the Dykeman Spring Nature Park. I discovered that there were small things that wanted to be photographed, so I obliged them. The flowers were all shot in macro mode, but I had to use the zoom to get the butterflies; there were lots of winged critters around but none of them would let me get close enough to use the macro. Oh well...
