    I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself.

    How many photographers does it take to change a light bulb? 50. One to change the bulb, and forty-nine to say, "I could have done that better!"

    Yepper....that was pretty good. thumb.gif Very creative in insightful there, Ben. I see many faces in flowers. Especially the cartoonish weird character types. Here are some recent shots of orchids that reminded me of alien/cartoonish faces.

    Hey Mike,

    He's a native of the Viera Zoo anyhow. They had a small butterfly exhibit awhile ago. I was replying to pathfinder but you got in first. I considered deleting it but figured if you could stretch your shot into a response to PF's shot then I could go that extra mile too. :lol4
