Butterflies are great – beautiful, non-dangerous, and not too fast to escape the camera. The problem is that they don’t often live in Seattle, especially mid-winter. Coming to my rescue is the Pacific Science Center and their butterfly habitat. I was there for something else and didn’t have long, but I loved spending a few minutes here. The butterflies are huge, released twice a day, and aren’t too far away to take pictures of. I might go back with the right equipment in tow – knowing that they’re there rain or shine is just too enticing to pass up when the temperature is in the mid 30’s.

    I know from experience that nature photography is hella hard. So, good show old man, good show.

    Tanning allows you to experiment with different styles and looks.
    If you don’t mind your tan being darker than you can treat the rest of your tan instead of the blotches and streaks.
    Acting as a tan accelerator these lotions are
    great for achieving the perfect tan.
