Hi Gang - I was in Seattle for fathers day visiting our daughters. While my wife and girls went shopping, I went to the Pacific Science Center. I thought you might like this shot of a Tarantula about 3 inchs long. He looks friendly enough. I also have a shot of some 3 inchCockroaches, but they're to gross looking to put on a good family site like this. Now back to wildflowers, they don't slither or crawl- Bruce

Bper,

Nice shot. Were you shooting through a glass window?

I was in Seattle last week and posted some images (see the thread titled "Sleepless in Seattle)! Never made it to the Pacific Science Center though!

Show us the roaches!! Jay

Ok, but don't look before dinner. The actual highlight of myvisit there was a trip to the butterfly house, with live butterflies everywhere. Both the spider and roaches were in glass houses. The butterfly house, you get to go right into a tropical forest full of butterflies. Here's the pictures - Bruce

butterfly image is a 'bluemorf'. when it opens it's wings it's turquoise. butterflies are slow, BUT, try catching one inflight!

Your right Roy, I took some shots of them with there wings open and they are sky blue on the inside. On a side note, several fellows in therehad bigNikons and Canons and were eyeballing my little DL wondering what kind of little DSLR this was. I don't think they could believe how nice it fit my hands - Bruce

Awesome (love butterflies). I still can't believe how few people know about this camera, and what little regard the mag people have for it. As soon as I saw that it was smaller and lighter than any of the other budget dSLRs, I quit looking at any other camera.

Very nice pictures of the roaches and the butterflies. The museum in Milwaukee, WI also has a live butterfly exhibit. Plan to visit over July 4th weekend and am looking forward to capturing a few with my DL.

Yes, I too have also noticed other DSLR users eye my DL...must be latent Pentax envy!!:-)
