Butterflies and More Butterflies

I took my first photography workshop last Saturday at Butterfly Wonderland with photographer Lisa Langell.  It was a great experience working with a professional photographer.  She explained things so well and worked one on one with each of us.

After the workshop we got to spend more time in the atrium taking our own photos and practicing what we learned in class.  Time sure fly's when you are having fun I spent another 2 hours after class taking photos.

Below are some of the photos I took from the day.  I don't know all the butterfly names I need to do more research on their names.  Yes there are birds in the atrium also, I know crazy :-)
