A new beginning for Flowing Waters

I can't imagine anyone will actually read this, since I'm sure the folks who used to follow this mess have long since given up on it. 

The truth is, the blog started as an online fishing diary, and I rarely get to fish anymore.  Work has occupied my every waking moment and I have written nothing for over 3 months.  I haven't even been out shark tooth hunting. 

But - don't cry for me, Argentina!  I have been bird shooting in Italy, South Africa, and Argentina over the past 4 months, and will eventually post some of those adventures.

In the meantime, I have acquired, and am learning to use, a real camera.  I bought a Nikon 3100 and have had a ball learning to use it.  LEARNING is the operative word, because I have barely scratched the surface.  But, with a big butterfly bush in the yard, I have had a lot of opportunities to photograph butterflies and other buggy critters.  I will be posting them here on  a weekly basis.

Please be sure to click on the photos for larger views.

I welcome any and all feedback, especially hints on how to get better!!

neat looking bugs there, the second one from the bottom looks like the wings are made from jungle cock feathers, good luck with the new camera!

Hey Joe, nice to hear from you! That's one humdinger of a camera. Those photos are great. Sounds like you need a trip to the high country.

Funny how life gets in the way of blogging. I can relate. My readers are long gone as well. I will definitely come by to see the photos. Using a real camera is on my bucket list!

Hey Joe. Compared to what I do with my little digital, you're already a pro.

Looks like you're off to a good start with the camera! Have fun with it!
