I hope you got a chance to read my post on the Monarch butterfly, Breakfast, Bedtime and Losing Butterflies. It has links to many studies on the decline. Beauty in Niagara Trail Finds is a photo packed post with images taken in golden hour lighting.
Shortly, I will have a series of posts showing how I get my photos. There are a few things that help me get my shot, even in bad light. Upcoming a post called, Dealing With Yucky Light When Photographing and a Prize. Yep, it has a giveaway. Plus, you can tell me how you deal with that midday sun.
