Just before leaving Dismal Falls, we caught some butterflies loving the thistles. They were very good to us and let us get all the shots we wanted. ’Think these are Swallowtails.

I’m a self-taught photographer & love taking photos along with dabbling in creating work. It’s wonderful to look at so many wonderful artists’ works & also learning. Favorite animal – cats. I love Stephen King books and movies; love stories; Criminal Minds, Law and Order-Special Victims. I work PT with my daughter at a private school. I appreciate all who visit my work.
