Morning Walk

My wife and daughters were scheduled to fly out to California this morning with her parents for a week to stay with them at their house. I'm scheduled to fly out there next week then fly back with my wife and daughters the week after that. That's a lot of flying!

This morning, I woke up early and lost track of time. We were supposed to be in the car at 10:30 to be at the airport around 11:15. I looked at my watch and thought it was getting to be time to go. My wife informed me that it was only 9, not 10. I decided at that moment I was bored! I needed to get out of the way so my wife and her parents could finish getting everything ready to go. Yes, I do mostly just get in the way of those things.

I decided a decent way to pass the time was to take a walk around the "neighborhood." I use the term loosely as we only have three neighbors visible from our house and only when there are no leaves on the trees. Here are the results of this mornings walk.

This one is arguably the best of all of them. I should have composed the previous four shots a little better. I'm still learning though.

I hope that everyone got to their destinations alright.

I really like the photograph with the butterfly. Those little guys move so fast, sometimes it can be hard to get a shot composed on them.

Thanks Craig. Everyone made it safely. They're out there having fun without me. :)

Both times I shot butterflies, I wasn't expecting to. They're neat creatures. I have another that I took at my grandparents today. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but if I do, it's going on my blog. It's a moth, but it's pretty and HUGE!

I disagree - I think the second shot with the plants in the foreground is fantastic!

Thanks for the comment. I liked it too, especially the colors I was able to get out of it during RAW processing. I'll be acquiring a wide-angle lens soon, so I'm hoping to go back and make those shots a little more interesting.
