I recently visited the Butterflies LIVE! exhibit at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.  This photo of a Tiger Longwing on a red coneflower was one of my favorite shots from the trip.  If you’re in the Richmond area Lewis Ginter is definitely worth a visit.

House Finch, Snowy Day, I

This weekend we had spring-like temperatures making it hard to believe I took this photo only about a week ago.  This male House Finch made for a colorful subject with the snowy white background.


Red and Blue Damselflies

The damselflies on the Rappahannock River come in a wide variety of colors.  I thought this red one was particularly colorful.


Northern Cardinal, 4

Virginia’s state bird can be difficult to photograph. The Northern Cardinal normally keeps at a safe distance from people so it’s hard to get really close to them.  The male’s brilliant red color can also make exposure and even focus difficult at times.  I captured this one in open shade and that seems to have resolved the color issues.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid

Traditions De France

During the walking part of my commute through Old Town Alexandria I kept my eyes open for vivid images.  Normally I walk on the same side of the street as Traditions De France so I pass right by without really seeing it.  Viewed from across the street it really does make for a vivid image.
