Zoominations, Night Lights - May 24, 2015

Even with coming here a month ago, I was still able to get some different shots.  I hope next year it will come back and be even bigger with all new light displays.


Zoominations, Sunset - May 24, 2015

I think some of my best shots were at sunset because there is the combination of lights and the last of the daylight.  I stayed at this one spot over the water for a long time because the light just kept getting better and better...then finally, it was time for the night shots.

Zoominations, Daytime - May 24, 2015

Everything looked so different here during the day as opposed to last time I was here only at night in April.  I got to see the show this time too, and here are my best shots.

Busch Gardens - May 22, 2015

Aside from the ice show, there were many animals to photograph.  Here are some of my favorites of the chimps.

Busch Gardens Ice Show - May 24, 2014

I was glad to have my camera during the show so I could try some slow shutter shots.  I like the effects of this method because you can feel the movement of the subjects in the photo, which is pretty neat for a still image to do.

Finches at Gainesville Butterfly - May 22, 2015

I also took a few shots of the little finches that were there.  They were very pretty!  Outside there was a nature walk and I saw a red-headed woodpecker, but didn't get any great photos since he was high in the trees.

Gainesville Butterfly Rainforest - May 22, 2015

This place was amazing!  It was probably the largest butterfly garden I have been to with butterflies from around the world.  My favorite butterfly was the one that looks the same backwards and forwards.  One butterfly landed on my hand!
