It’s always a joy to spend time in my garden … to see how well all the different bugs get along with each other. If only …

A fun image of a swallowtail butterfly and little bumble bee taken in my garden in July of 2010 with the Nikon D300 and the 70-300mm vr Nikon lens at 1/80 shutter speed and f/13.0 aperture. Iso was at 320, exposure was + 0.33, and focal length was 240mm. A bit of fun in Photoshop CS4, Adobe Camera Raw and CaptureNX2.
