Random Flickr Photo of the Day – April 25, 2014

This is an oldy, but quite the goody. I found this bug or beetle sitting lifeless on our floor leading out to the deck. Thought before I discarded it, I should take few photos.

Random Flickr Photo of The Day

One of my personal favorites, shot at the Storm King Art Center in The Hudson Valley, NY. ( It’s a massive expanse of a space, and the fields were brimming with life.   It took me a good while to get done taking photos of bees, lady bugs, and of course butterflies.  View my photoset and see what’s what.  I personally love the photographs that came out of that trip.  I used my Pentax K-20D with a DA* 50-135mm Lens, processed in Lightroom.
