The truth be told I’ll never tire of photographing the wild horses that call eastern North Carolina home. But they’re not the only thing I shoot. I as out and about Sunday afternoon doing some scouting in the Croatan National Forest when I came across and area that was just littered with butterflies. The number of these pretty little bugs was almost staggering. Even though I wasn’t equipped for these types of photos… (I had the wrong tripod head to mount the camera with the macro lens)… but I roughed it with some hand-held shots. Here are a few of my favorites.
