Random Flickr photo of the day – October 25, 2012

Butterfly

Apologies for the super late post.  I just got my new phone today, a Galaxy Nexus S, and I’ve been playing around with it a bit much. It is also my GF’s birthday, so, stuff had to be taken care of.

Anyhow, this was a picture shot at this massive art place in upstate NY, called Storm King art center.  They have a massive expanse of land, and they have massive artwork all over the place.  I don’t think we even got to explore the whole place.  In one area, I just noticed a bunch of insects, bee’s, lady bugs, butterflies.  I sat there observing, and I decided to just start taking photographs.  I don’t have a true macro lens for my Pentax, but the DA* 50-130mm lens proved to be a worthy lens.  Below is one of my personal favorites from that set.
