Ft Worth: Botanical Butterfly Gardens

After enjoying the Dallas Butterfly House, I discovered that Fort Worth has a bigger and better version.  I took a little trip over there and attempted to catch a few shots.  It was tough because of the Sunday crowds.  Here are just a few shots.

Dallas: Snow

When I woke up to heavy snowfall here in Dallas, I was a bit surprised.  What surprised me more was that it continued through the day until about 12 inches had piled up.  Because of the borderline temperatures, the snow was very wet and it clung to all the trees.  Of course I had to pull my camera out and snap some shots while at the office.

Dallas: Butterfly House

I decided to take a "practice" day for photography this weekend.  I figured that there were plenty of Dallas-area destinations still to explore so I wandered to the Butterfly Gardens.  Although I don't own a macro lens for extreme close-ups, I figured that butterflies would be a challenging shoot since they are small and fast.  Since we're experiencing a bout of cold weather, the outdoor gardens were closed; instead, I explored the butterfly house - a climate-controlled terrarium.  Here are a few shots.
