Dreaming of a Better Time by AuntDot

Dreaming of a Better Time by 

This poor little butterfly’s wings are badly frayed. I think it has seen better days. I think this is a Queen Butterfly. Butterfly photo taken at Homosassa Butterfly in Homosassa, Florida. Texture shot is from a photo of tree bark.

Both images taken with my Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D. Combination (double exposure) of two of my images achieved in Picasa3, a free download.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
