The first thing I saw when I walked out of my door this morning was this beautiful butterfly. Turns out he is a Papilio multicaudata or a two-tailed Swallowtail. He/she was more then willing to let me get close enough for some great macros. The light wasnt’t perfect, but this just goes to show that sometimes you don’t have to go far and the art comes to you. Hummingbirds, bees and butterflies are constantly swarming our Mimosa tree. What a great way to start the day.
I’ll be heading to Vegas tomorrow to see my wife’s band the Pin-Ups play a concert for a roller derby convention called Rollercon. Its thousands of scantily clad subculture women with bruises skating the baking Nevada heat who aren’t afraid of a few broken bones. Rock n roll, beer and gambling. Time to go to work….
