[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Haven't uploaded something here in a while, so here is something from my trip to England.

I like these butterflies though I found it difficult getting photos. I had to kneel in the grass and really get my camera in there. Ah well, it's all a part of nature photography, I guess. :)
