Gulf Fritillary

We decided to start a butterfly garden this year, including a couple of passion flower vines, zennias, cone flowers, and others. Today there was a good size gulf fritillary drinking up nectar from the zennias so I got a quick shot. The host plant for these guys is the passion flower vine, so we see plenty of them!

Photo Scans

I've been away from the site a bit. Summer is in full swing which means entertaining kids, purging old items from the house (we do summer cleaning, not spring cleaning!) and of course it also means dance revue time, so I have been editing plenty of those. So not as much time for photography but I have had a chance to get some old family photos scanned. This is by far one of my favorite things to do. It doesn't even have to be my family. I just love old photos. I've scanned and restored several for clients and everyone just has such unique images.

This is one from an old family album of my grandmother with what looks like a vacuum salesman - with some retouching. Be on the look out for some more.
