This was the first time I’ve used saturation in Picasa. It really brought out the berries.
I was initially disappointed I couldn’t get the colors of this butterfly because I was on the wrong side of the sun, but now I really like the look of the silhouette. It put me in mind of a song from Toad the Wet Sprocket, my favorite band since high school.
He’s a wonder, he’s a little black-wing boy
Oh my daughters
He’ll fill you with joy
In time I will
Collect the world
The hearts and limbs of
Butterflies you who soar o’er
Had you wings of
Butterflies oh father, I offer
Toad the Wet Sprocket (Fear, 1991)
lyrics via Poem Hunter
Behind the cut I’ve embedded a youtube video of the song. (more…)
One more pic of Russell Cave. This picture & Scars were both taken the day of Russell Cave’s 50th anniversary celebration of being a national monument.
