The image of the beautiful Malay Lacewing Butterfly was captured at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland in September of 2010 with the Nikon D300 and the 70-300mm vr Nikon lens at 200mm. The leaves of the River Birch tree were taken as I sipped my coffee and waited for the humming birds on my back deck in Montgomery County, Maryland with the Nikon D300 and the 70-300mm vr Nikon lens. Images combined in Photoshop CS4 with much play and tinkering there as well as Adobe Camera Raw and Nikons NX2. My thanks to Leslie Nicole, Florabella and Flypaper for the great textures.
