Great pictures. That one of the deer with it's eyes reflecting your flash - verrry spooky.

I love the enchanted ducky evening. The colour of the water has muted pinks and oranges that Monet might have soared on. A very good New Year to ye!

That portrait of Nutkin is great- he looks like he's been caught with his paw in the cookie jar. I also love the cardinal- did you use the blind to get so close?

Happy NEW YEAR!

P.S. Cardinal Mom had a nest or fledgling in the area, so she was keeping a careful eye on me.

Hi thunder, I've been dreaming about a "Happy New Year" comment from you since about 3am!

Anyway, Happy 2012! Hope it's a great one for everyone!

THe monarch ones stand out because the orange against the purple is just sooooooo amazing. *eye bulge*

The close up of the skwil is also mouth-agaping cool.

And I WILL make something with the cat one day. This I vow.

Yay! I love a good recap. I missed some of those early ones.

I really enjoyed those photographs, but specially admired the first butterfly - the composition was excellent, and the last one - so atmospheric.
