This guy was hanging out on the window outside our break room at work, and I couldn’t help but make a few portraits of him with my phone.
One or more of my expert readers will set me straight, but I think this is a Pipevine or Blue Swallowtail. I don’t see too many butterflies, but this guy was pretty interesting. I did a little Snapseed magic to clean up the background and juice the colors a bit.
I’m currently wading through my photos from our recent visit to Colorado. Stay tuned!
Due to a “mishap” with my old phone, I found myself with a brand spanking new phone recently. I had been overdue for a replacement for nearly a year, and the technology had gotten a bit dated, considering that I run a lot of stuff on my phone that hadn’t been invented when I bought it.
My old phone was a Samsung Galaxy S3. It was a pretty good phone, but had started to slow dramatically and was eating batteries like I eat cookies. The latest reviews were raving about the camera in the new Galaxy S6, so I decided to give it a try. I haven’t taken many photos with it yet, but I’ve been pretty impressed with the ones I’ve taken so far.
I just may have changed my mind about using my phone as a camera. Or is it using my camera as a phone? I forget. More to come!
