    The butterfly is especially nice in my mind.

    Lovely, especially the butterfly but I also like the lines in the photo of the trees.

    A wonderful set!

    The first one is superb. Despite the heavy crop in the second one, it still looks sharp (at least on my iPad screen).

    So, how many critters are there in the last image. I see a rabbit and a deer.

    I keep reviewing the last one over and over thinking in black-and-white. I hope I can convince you to convert it to bring out the sometimes rich, sometimes subtle tones that exist in all those glorious shades of green.

    2 Deer, a northern bluebird in the tree on the left, a squirrel on the tree on the right, and where is the rabbit? Every time I look at it, I see more critters.

    Nancy, james, christina, mike,bobo.......................Thanks.

    Very shallow depth of field, but I guess it worked out ok.

    I focused on the butterfly, and because the flower was like a ball, only the center was in focus. Wasn't too shure about the composition, at first, but since everyone liked it, I guess it's OK.

    Whoops! Upon closer inspection, my rabbit turns out to be the second deer (lying on the grass).
