Serene Sunrise – Photography by Rick Stephen



The sun breaks the horizon over a serene Lake Elsinore in southern California. I miss having the time to stop by the lake in the early mornings as when this photo was taken. It was a good way to start the day and a habit I need to resume. I hope you enjoyed the photo! Click on the photo to see this photo and others in my portfolio.

Sublime Swallowtail by Rick Stephen



Sometimes I just get lucky as in this case. I took my camera to a local park while on my lunch break yesterday. One end of the park attracts butterflies, primarily Swallowtails, Monarch, Mourning Cloak and lots of Skippers. This beautiful Swallowtail was flying to within arms length of me, turning and then coming back. Finally, it settled down on a bush mere feet away. With my zoom macro lens, I was able to capture a few frames of this sublime beauty. It was as if she wanted my attention and then posed for me. Would that all these beautiful creatures be so cooperative. I hope you enjoy the photo!
