I'm going to try firing up the blog again for 2016, especially the nature/landscape side of things. It is in desperate need of a redesign so I will be working on that while shooting for KSTV. Unfortunately the slideshows on older posts have been disabled by flickr. You can find all of my work in my gallery.

Black Swallowtails

Our black swallowtail butterflies have started to emerge. We released this one over the weekend and had one emerge during the night. No matter how many times we witness this metamorphosis, it is always exciting seeing the butterflies.

"Love is like a butterfly, it goes where it pleases and it pleases wherever it goes.
Love is like a butterfly, hold it too tight, it'll crush. Hold it too loose, it'll fly."

I look forward every year to your butterfly shots. I never get tired of them, and love the fact that you document the process. What a great experience for your kids. I love the black swallowtails; the caterpillar is as pretty as the adult form!
