My “Happy New Year” Images
My most frequent posts in 2014 have been photos to Gallery Ludwig and “café art” to Silver Canvas. I wanted a colorful, cheerful image for my well-wishes. One that would be appropriate for the photo gallery and that could also be made into a delightful art piece for Silver Canvas. I found some butterfly photos from Florida. The flowers seemed to overpower the gulf fritillary so these photos remained “asleep” in my archive. See what I mean:
There were several in the series, some with the butterfly in flight. At a 1/125 second shutter speed the butterfly was “no catch”, way too fast. But it kept coming back to that flower. What attracted it? Nectar? Oh, maybe the hot Florida sun had started a bit of fermentation? He, he, chuckle. So that lead to the cropped and manipulated images shared on the other blogs.
All the best wishes to my friends and visitors for a prosperous 2015!
Happy New Year!
