Saturday at Sotterly

A couple of Saturdays ago I took a photography class from Robert Tinari that was given at Sotterly Plantation. We were focusing on the gardens and scenery. The light was a bit harsh given that we were there from 11:00 - 3:00. It was also pretty windy out. Even given those conditions I did manage to get out a few good pictures.

This first picture is the under side of one of the flowers in the garden. I had to use my camera pack to block the sun wind. Pink and green is one of my favorite color combos. That is probably why I was so drawn to this flower.
Most of the really colorful butterflies were gone for the season, but these little ones were still having fun. I love how the wings look like they have many "eyes."
