I went back to Miejer Gardens for the continuing "butterflies are blooming" event.First shot is of a small part of the
arboretum where they are released. This was my parting shot as I was the last one to leave. The temperature was 80 degrees,
a wonderful respite from the harsh winter we are having.

a fellow photographer with a big gun. That is a 100-400mm lens.
How'd you like to carry that rig around all day? I do like the soft box though.

Thanks for sharing. Nice Pix. Wife & I are going to a butterfly sanctuary on Sunday. You've given me some helpful ideas!
