La Union Botanical Garden and Butterfly Photography
Me, and butterfly photography!
I know I’m not really a hardcore photographer but I have patience… If you would have seen me inside that butterfly garden, you would see sweat dripping down my back and everywhere… Now, that sounds disgusting! But I am a very determined woman!
I did not really have macro lenses or what not… so I just used my defective kit lens (18-55mm Nikkor) with my Nikon D40 and my Panasonic Lumix LZ10.
Leh, no grabbing the photos and using it without my permission okay?
la la la…

Close Up 😛
Poor flower, all eaten by grasshopper
still using digicam… quality not as good as SLR… which made me think of buying a new one *faints*
They probably feed on serpentsssss 😛
Philippine Sea Eagle “the suplado”
Eagles have really strong features. I got intimidated just by looking at it resting on top of a rock… good thing there’s a cage, if not I… *faints*
Hawk Eagle “The Pirate”
I called him that because his other eye is injured
Unlike the other eagles above, I can say that this Eagle is more like a “rockstar”
he’s a goofy kinda eagle…
Rofus Night Heron
I named him “Spock”
because he looks like spock 😛
what a show off lol
O_o mushroom growing on top of the mini fountain

Hope you enjoyed reading and viewing my photos hehe 😛
I only used my digicam Panasonic Lumix LZ10 in almost all pictures because my Nikon D40 kit lens’ auto-focusing is broken
