Butterfly Pavilion  
Went to the Butterfly Pavilion here in Denver (well, technically maybe Westminster or something) on Saturday. And, of course, took my Nikon D700 and 105mm macro lens to give them a workout.

Could have gotten better pictures, I guess. It could have been brighter (it was cloudy outside, and even though there wouldn't have been direct sunlight inside the greenhouse area, it would have made things brighter), I could maybe have brought my flash (which I really need to learn how to use properly), but all things being equal, some of the pictures turned out passably. Nothing really spectacular, though, the really tight depth-of-field for the wide open-lens made for lots of blurry wings and such, and even wide-open the exposure times were still too long for hand-held. Maybe I'll go up again before I leave and try again.

I give you some sort of unidentified butterfly:

Click through for the set, as always.

I like your friends. Can I claim them for my own while you're gone? :D

Because, as we all know, you can only be friends with one person at a time. :-P

Hey, did you see my turtle while you where there? (and did you hold Rosie?)

I didn't see a turtle that I can recall, and I didn't hold Rosie, I tried to take pictures while my friend held Rosie. They didn't turn out, though.
