I got a new lens with my new camera. It is a 85mm fixed portrait lens. I have been dying to try it out on butterflies. So the day before we leave for our vacation I find myself taking the kids up to Seattle for a day at the science museum and more importantly an opportunity to visit the butterflies. We always enjoy ourselves at the museum so we were all excited even though the kids knew Mom was planning on being a psycho picture taker.
So here are some of the best. I asked Dave to pick out his favorites. I am still learning how to use the whole idea of aperture. Some were great but not the best focus. They didn't make the cut. I had so much fun.
(Dave says that butterflies loose some of their beauty and look a little creepy this close up)
So in the end I did try to take some pictures of my beautiful children. But they are less predictable than bugs. I am happy with this one that I took of Sara. She was just so happy playing with this little boat in the water. So Grandma's eat your hearts out:-)
