As we walked the downtown area of Chicago I saw at least 4 newlywed couples. This one struck me because of the smile on the bride’s face. I’m not much of a romantic, but these two seemed extremely happy. Hopefully that lasts in their marriage. Too many people take marriage and the family so haphazzardly.
It’s on the edge of invading these total stranger’s privacy, but I saw Brandon’s picture and had to put up mine! :) We got back from Chicago yesturday and I haven’t had time to process many pictures. I took enough to keep me busy for a month. Not that they are all that good, but I like several of them. You might disagree, but that’s your right!
This is the same area that I took this shot.
I don’t really like bugs. I was out shooting by a stream and heard this guy fly past my head. It sounded like a huge bee. It’s alot bigger than it looks here that’s for sure. Right after I shot a bunch of him sitting like this I watched him take off and tackle a moth mid air. He took the moth and it looked like he was shaking the life out of him. Then I got a bit too close and he flew to another bush while carrying the moth. Here is a shot of him holding the moth while hanging from a leaf with one leg. I thought about making this a seperate post but it’s kinda gross and I didn’t want to look at it for a whole day! I’m not sure what this thing is, it seemed like a cross between a dragon fly and a spider. I was surprised at how close I was able to get to him. For awhile he really seemed to be posing for me. :)
