Some people are afraid of clowns.
I’m not.I just don’t think clowns are all that funny.I always thought all that make-up was dumb.
Those who know me well,know I have a thing about butterflies.
…They freak me out….
…There! I said it….
I love watching them flit around the garden.
I plant plants just to attract them.
I can identify them all.
But I prefer to watch them from inside the screened lanai.
When a Red Admiral got inside the pool cage,I refused to go out there for 2 days!I left the doors open and,thankfully,it,finally,flew out.Or else,I would still be stuck inside my house.
All my photos of butterflies have been taken with my big zoom lens.
I’m not afraid of snakes.
Actually,they kind of fascinate me.
I have never been to a butterfly house,and have always refused invitations to go to the one in Gainesville,or any public garden that has one,for that matter.
Where did I get this weirdness from?
Probably,it is from,when I was little, my older brothers telling me Dragon Flies and butterflies would sew my ears shut if I let them get too close.They scarred me life,I tell ya…
But no more!
Yesterday AM,when I was trying to get a photo of a mama alligator and her brood
…totally missed that shot…she wasn’t happy with me anyways…
I noticed a Zebra Long Wing on the Jatropha.
Time to get over this!
“I can do this.”
So,with shaking hands I crept up on him/her….
and I did it!
with the regular lens,too!
Who said I can’t deal with my issues?
I still have some more to deal with….
