It was a hot and steamy weekend…
…okay. Just kidding.
I schlepped down into the city for the second weekend in a row. If you read last Sunday’s entry, you know that this is a rarity for me. I blame my friend, Bill. He went to the Dallas Arboretum a few days ago and posted some great pictures to his blog. I love the arboretum, and I am fascinated by the Chihuly exhibit that is currently on display though out the gardens. So, I decided to braved the 100+ degree temperatures on Saturday. I spent about three hours baking in the sun and taking lots of pictures. Here are a few of my favorites:
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a red dragonfly before.
I don’t know the species, but this guy was very vocal and not at all happy to have me wondering around beneath his tree.
Chihuly. I love this exhibit and this piece, in particular. I’ve tried three times to photograph it. Unsuccessfully. This time was different. I experimented a lot more with my manual settings. I think it also helped that it was a virtual ghost town and I was able to take my time.
I almost didn’t share this one. I wanted to keep it all for myself. But then, it was my favorite of the day, so how could I not share?.
