Creative Photography


This is kind of fun. I enjoyed visiting the other bloggers who entered posts in Creative Photography last week to see what sort of pictures they came up with.
There was quite a variety, and I loved most of them.

I believe that I included this picture in a blog post that I wrote a while back, about butterflies. I have cropped it a bit. The picture is of sleeping butterflies, and was taken a few years ago during the monarch butterfly migration in Cape May, NJ. I had no idea at the time that butterflies sleep, clinging to trees and bushes. They look like leaves on the mimos
a tree.
If you look closely, you can make out the orange of the butterflies' wings. When I took the picture, the sun was going down and light was fading fast - hence the need for the butterflies to find a place to sleep for the night.

If you would like to enter, follow the link to Creative Photography , read the rules and sign up before next Thursday afternoon.

Simple dark shapes on a lightish background can be so much more than just dark shapes! Very interesting!

The butterflies at peace are quite delicate, as if they sprung from a bud on the branch. Great shot!
