Happiness



"Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder." - Thoreau

did you make this picture?

Thank you so much. I meant to add an explanatory note...this shot was from the first outing with my new toy, a Nikon D40 digital SLR. I was strolling around just snapping off shots and getting familiar with the new camera, when I came across a patch of flowers that had attracted more than a dozen of these butterflies.

Most of the previous photos on this blog were taken with a Canon Powershot 230, which was fine for a point-and-shoot. But I was ready for an upgrade to get beyond some of its limitations.

I hope to bring back a few more good pics with the Nikon soon!
