Nature Being Patient With Me

This butterfly was incredibly tolerant of my presence and gave me ample opportunity to get a good shot, but I just couldn't get one.  So, I joined the West Kentucky Photography Club tonight with the hope that I can learn some things with my little point and shoot camera and move on to a better camera.  I felt at sea in there, but everyone was nice.

I thought they were all good shots, especially the last shot in which the butterfly's curled tongue is revealed.

But I think it's swell that you joined that photography club. You already have a good eye.

Thanks, Laurel. They all end up looking blurry to me.

Everyone is so advanced in that club that I don't know that I'll go back. It was a thought that I thought was a good thought, but I am not really a club person, and I don't have their talent, and maybe I'll just be happier taking my little pictures and posting them here and there.

What I guess I am saying is maybe I really don't want to learn. Maybe I was just having a moment in which I thought I did want to learn more about photography.

Time will tell. Glad you think I have a good eye. I think I do at times.

I'm not really a club person.

Amen, sister.

Me, neither.

I'm with Woody Allen on the whole club thing.

I think your eye pretty damned great, so just keep on snapping. Practice may not make perfect, but it will definitely hone your vision.

Meanwhile, I read about the various mutations found in the butterflies exposed to the radiation in Japan, and man, that really scared me and bummed me out at the same time.

Every little thing, every big thing, too, will ultimately suffer the consequences of that nuclear accident.
