Yeah, me too. I can't get the links to pull from Flickr. Bummer. I guess I'll have to post links for the time being.

Thank you. I could literally spend hours there. I think I'm going to look for a macro before I go next time.

Nice captures... There's a butterfly pavilion in Niagara Falls that I occasionally visit... I'd like to go more often, but it's busy and expensive. First shot is also my fave.

Wow great shot! I love the detail in the first picture, the black and white really pops out!

Thank you everyone for the critique. I've taken alot of pictures, but I've learned that taking photgraphs is not such an easy thing.

It's so nice to hear that I may finally be doing something right.

Thanks again,

J
