Fly By Shooting

Standing in a grove of Aspen trees,
butterflies were swooping all around me.
I wanted to get a shot of one in flight
under the canopy of leaves above.
It took quite a few shots before I was able
to capture this clear shot.

Re: Truly incredible

Thank you, that is very kind of you to say. I am really an amateur when it comes to photography, but you are correct that I love nature.

My dream is to get a camera shot of a cougar, (and live to tell about it, of course :0). In my dream world, I would be a wildlife photographer, but I haven't had much time to pursue that lately. Maybe you will get that cougar shot... I look forward to seeing it.

We have had an incredibly warm winter here too, until this weekend. We are getting some snow now, and it is welcome, as we need the moisture.

cougar shot!

Maybe i'll get that pic. of my dreams,new snow reveals some tracks,as you say to get out alive!The big male grizzly was quite surprised how close I came to him,the look on his face but he was not in an aggreesive mood(lucky me!) .
Maybe not Cougar right away but something ,,your wildlife shots are very professional to me!
God bless! trr.

Re: cougar shot!

The grizzly encounter would be exciting! It would get my blood pumping for sure. Glad he wasn't too hungry.

If you get that cougar shot, I would love to see it.

Thanks again for the kind compliment!
